While many advances have been made regarding the eradication of breast cancer, the fact remains that more than one million women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year
Scranton, PA (Vocus) October 17, 2010
Distance learning correspondence school Stratford Career Institute has launched a new fundraising initiative to raise money for breast cancer research and awareness.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Stratford Career Institute will donate one dollar for every new friend who “Likes” Stratford’s Facebook page beginning October 17, 2010 and ending at midnight on October 31, 2010.
“While many advances have been made regarding the eradication of breast cancer, the fact remains that more than one million women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year,” said John McNeff, Vice President of Marketing for Stratford Career Institute.
Stratford stresses that there are no obligations in choosing to “Like” their Facebook page and that the sole purpose of the campaign is to raise awareness and funds for a good cause.
“More than half of our students are women, so we feel this is an extremely important and relevant topic of which to raise awareness. We are proud to help support Susan G. Komen for the Cure® in their continued efforts in the global breast cancer movement,” added Mr. McNeff.
Stratford will post an update on their Facebook page on November 1, 2010 with the total amount of money raised.
