Irvine, Calif., July 29, 2008 - Smart Levels Media has been recruited by the Orange County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® as a Platinum Sponsor for the 17th annual Komen Orange County Race for the Cure® , Sunday, Sept. 28.
The Race for the Cure is the premier 5K fundraising event that celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. As a sponsor, Smart Levels Media will work with the Komen Orange County Affiliate and play a key role in funding the Race, which is expected to raise more than $3 million this year.
"We're happy to sponsor the 2008 Race for the Cure campaign," said Joey Hinojosa, president of Smart Levels Media. " Our loyal customers make this possible. We all want to win the fight against cancer, and being able to support a local organization like the Susan G. Komen Orange County affiliate allows us to play a part."
Seventy five percent of all the money raised stays in the community to fund local breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment projects, and the remaining 25 percent supports the Komen Award and Research Grant Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research.
"We are thrilled to have Smart Levels Media as a sponsor this year," said Lisa Wolter, executive director of the Komen Orange County Affiliate. " Our sponsors are an integral part of our Race, and this key Komen fundraising event would not be possible without their support. We thank Smart Levels Media for coming on board and look forward to working together toward a world without breast cancer."
The Orange County Race for the Cure, which takes place Sunday, Sept. 28 at Fashion Island in Newport Beach, Calif., features a morning of women's and co-ed 5K runs, a health and fitness expo, and a breast cancer survivor tribute.
