Community Outreach: Breast Cancer Awareness in 2012

Following on the heels of its popular “Pink Podium Promise”, AmpliVox launched in 2012 a companion donation program providing free Pink Megaphones to support breast cancer awareness organizations. AmpliVox gave away over 300 free Pink Podiums and Pink Mini-megaphones to breast cancer awareness groups to use at their events, meetings, and presentations.

At the starting gun in Central Park for the 2012 Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure, race participants were guided by staffers armed with bright pink megaphones, delivering instructions and encouragement along their route.

The distinctive “Pink Power” bullhorn was adapted from AmpliVox’s versatile S600 Mini-Meg 10-Watt Megaphone, an all-weather portable 10-watt sound system that can carry voices over 100 yards.

“We’re delighted to supply our pink power megaphones to the New York City Komen Race for the Cure,” commented AmpliVox CEO Don Roth.

“This event exemplifies the power of people coming together in a big way to accomplish great things, and AmpliVox’s megaphones will improve communication every step of the way. We’re happy to do our part in what we hope that this will be another record-setting year for fundraising in the continuing fight against breast cancer.”

AmpliVox’s corporate commitment to the fight against breast cancer began in 2009 with the launch of the “Pink Podium Promise” donation program. Inspired by a family member who served as a breast cancer advocate and public speaker, AmpliVox CEO Don Roth had his company’s popular polyurethane lecterns manufactured in the signature pink color of the breast cancer awareness movement to support its cause.

The lecterns soon appeared center stage at medical conferences, races, breast health seminars, and other events. Over 200 AmpliVox Pink Promise lecterns have been distributed to organizations nationwide, including a significant number to Komen for the Cure local affiliates.

Melissa Aucoin, Manager of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Series commented, "The entire Susan G. Komen for the Cure family is grateful to AmpliVox for this generous and useful Pink Podium donation program. We expect that these pink podiums will be centerpieces at many of our events in the future."
