Breaking the Silence at the 21st Annual Run/Walk Illinois Chapter of the NOCC




The 21st Annual Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer took place on Saturday, May 19, at Arlington International Racecourse in Arlington Heights.

The event was sponsored by the Illinois chapter of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC), which works to promote awareness of the subtle signs of ovarian cancer, assist newly-diagnosed patients throughout the country, provide ongoing support for caregivers, and advocate for the advancement of ovarian cancer research.


The NOCC has accounted for 248,800,000 steps nationwide at Run/Walk events in the past 2 years, raising an average of $400,000/race. Approximately 3,000 attend each year with nearly 150 survivors, with this event being the second year held at Arlington Racecourse.


Maintaining crowd control in noisy environments is no easy task, but with up to one mile of effective sound coverage, the Mity-Meg can provide the sound needed to communicate important event details with your attendees, or provide instruction during an emergency.

AmpliVox Mity-Meg are "Commercial Industrial" megaphones with talk, whistle and siren functions made from a durable ABS plastic construction that can take abuse.

Communicating in large open spaces is never a problem with an AmpliVox megaphone. Our lightweight, battery operated megaphones are essential to your public address activities and emergency preparedness kit.

All AmpliVox models have a comfortable pistol grip and are powered by alkaline batteries or lithium-ion battery pack with integrated wall charger that plugs into any 110-240V AC outlet.


The money raised from this event supports local and national programs. Locally it supports the survivor outreach and gatherings, awareness materials and events, and nationally it supports the 3-year commitment to Stand up to Cancer Dream Team and research.





Participants were encouraged to raise funds and make a difference in the lives of women and families affected by ovarian cancer, which strikes more than 22,000 women each year. Fun teal gifts were given as rewards for fundraising efforts. Paid participants for the run/walk received free general admission for afternoon racing at Arlington Racecourse.

Tech & Learning Live: Enhancing Multimedia In Classrooms




Tech & Learning Live is a high-powered, one-day event that provides K-12 decision makers with thought-provoking content on the hottest topics of the day in education technology.

An engaging and intimate setting, expert presentations and plenty of networking opportunities to ensure that participants leave with practical tools and key contacts for continued rich communities of practice.

AmpliVox CEO, Don Roth, will be at the event in Chicago on Friday, May 11, 2018 to present a discussion on "Specialized Furniture That Enhances Multimedia In Classrooms".


Remember the days of the big metal cart rolling down the hall with the giant TV and the VCR?

Thankfully, today's furniture is more functional, secure and also attractive.

Educators use a variety of multimedia devices to engage students and enhance learning such as:

  • Computers
  • Tablets
  • Projectors
  • Smartboards
  • Document Cameras
  • Smartphones




Effective devices need to be readily available for teachers and students to use. Being connected to sufficient audio is important, with storage to keep all audio visual equipment secured and ready-to-go.




The right multimedia furniture choices make digital equipment easier to use.




Obstacles to using classroom multimedia devices include:

  • Complicated setup
  • Devices not working properly
  • Equipment creates a cluttered classroom
  • Moving devices from room to room
  • Keeping devices charged
  • Inability of students to see/hear presentations
  • Keeping devices secure



Today’s furniture options offer customization to meet the needs and budgets of all different types of schools and situations.These are the multimedia features to look for when selecting a Lectern, Mobile Workstation, Portable PA System or Line Array Speaker.


Lecterns: One Size Does Not Fit All



Used extensively for high school/college classrooms, auditoriums, and meeting rooms, lecterns provide all-in-one storage and setup solutions.

With integrated shelves for projectors, power strips and data ports for devices and built-in sound systems, their lockable storage cabinets keeps all devices secure.



Mobile Workstations


When devices are shared between classrooms easily keep equipment "ready to go" with lockable cabinets, fold-out shelves for projectors, and rack mounts for sound system components. Sturdy, lockable casters provide for stable transportation and power strips and data ports allow for easy connectivity.



Portable Sound Systems


Ensure that all students can hear presentations. Your sound system should support wireless microphones and Bluetooth® streaming capabilities. AmpliVox Portable PA Systems are available in a wide range of sizes and power.



Line Array Speakers


Provide extra audio support for presentations, Line Array Speakers can be integrated with video conference carts, digital signage, and interactive white boards to deliver crystal clear sound in any setting.

The slim, lightweight compact line array speakers are designed with versatility and functionality in mind so they could be mounted onto any audio visual furniture, making it a perfect fit for adding a passive or amplified speaker to your media carts, projector carts or computer workstation.
