Home » Cancer Treatment Centers of America® named the Komen Philadelphia Affiliate CHAMPION SPONSOR OF THE PROMISE
You loved them last year as the Official Celebration Sponsor of the 20th Anniversary Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure... now, Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) is going to even greater lengths and deeper depths of devotion as the Komen Philadelphia Affiliate's first Champion Sponsor of the Promise.
As we enter the new era of our community breast cancer movement -- one where the next finish line we cross will be into a world without breast cancer -- the Komen Philadelphia Affiliate family is proud and thankful to have Cancer Treatment Centers of America as our "co-pilot" for this exciting journey.
Like their 2010 Race Celebration sponsorship, the
Champion Sponsor ofthe Promise commitment by CTCA is unprecedented in the history of the Komen Philadelphia Affiliate... demonstrating once again CTCA's utter devotion to fulfilling the Komen Promise by stopping at nothing until every person, of every generation, of every community is living the reality of an end to breast cancer forever.
A sponsor and supporter of numerous Komen Philadelphia Affiliate initiatives since opening its Eastern Regional Medical Center in Philadelphia in 2005, CTCA's commitment to our mission has grown exponentially over the past five years. Beyond a substantial financial commitment to the Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure, positioning them as Local Presenting Sponsor, as
Champion Sponsor ofthe Promise, CTCA will support multiple activities of The Affiliate through October 2011. Support will include everything from monetary and in-kind donations, to hosting events, to forming a Race team, volunteering, fundraising, and helping to plan and implement new initiatives for empowering the local breast cancer movement.
"Since we opened our doors in Northeast Philadelphia five years ago, patients have come from across the country, seeking individualized cancer care and new options of healing and hope. CTCA has become a contributing member of the community and we are honored to now be the official
Champion Sponsor ofthe Promise of the Komen Philadelphia Affiliate and the Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure -- a Philadelphia tradition that shares CTCA's spirit and commitment to fight cancer from all corners of our community," said John McNeil President and CEO, Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Philadelphia. "We look forward to partnering with the Komen Philadelphia Affiliate to bring the empowering spirit of Susan G. Komen to the community all year round."
McNeil continued, "In all we do, Cancer Treatment Centers of America and the Komen Philadelphia Affiliate will continue finding new options to beat cancer, while embracing the minds, bodies, and spirits of all those currently touched by the disease."
CTCA's activities as our
Champion Sponsor ofthe Promise will evolve throughout the year, and include:
Presenting Sponsorship of The Affiliate's annual Grantee Recognition luncheon
Presenting Sponsorship of the 2011 Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure Kick-Off Party
Main-Attraction Tent on Race Day: offering unique opportunities for Race-goers
Sponsorship of park-and-ride services for the Race
Inspirational online communications to the community from CTCA executives, staff and patient-survivors
Hosting of one Team Captain Mentor Rally
Presenting Sponsorship of the 2011 Komen Philadelphia Volunteer Thank-You Party
In addition, CTCA 'jump started' the partnership with multiple contributions to elevate the fun and success of the 2010 Komen Philadelphia Pink Tie Ball,® including underwriting new BidPal technology, bringing to us entertainers Candy Coburn and 'Marilyn Monroe,' and the purchase of 100 'Proud to be Every Girl's Best Friend' boas, the equivalent of funding 100 mammograms for women in need through The Affiliate's community grants program.
"The generosity of Cancer Treatment Centers of America, as well as their devotion to patient-focused care and fighting breast cancer never fail to amaze us," said Elaine I. Grobman, Executive Director of the Komen Philadelphia Affiliate. "The name of this partnership says it all...
Champion Sponsor ofthe Promise. Thirty years ago, Nancy Brinker promised her sister, Susan Komen she'd do everything within her power to end breast cancer forever. Today, the spirit of that promise lives on in Komen for the Cure and extraordinary activists like Cancer Treatment Centers of America. CTCA not only honors that promise, but they LIVE it every single day... empowering the cures right here and now, while leaving a legacy of a future without breast cancer for all generations to come."
