JFK Communications Goes the Extra Mile and Donates $500 to Komen CSNJ
JFK’s #MilesForKomen Challenge Sets Stage for Race for the Cure in October
JFK Communications’ #milesforkomen campaign generated $500 for the Susan G. Komen Central and South Jersey Affiliate. For the #MilesForKomen challenge, JFK Communications set a goal to run 500 miles between April and July with each participant committed to cover 100 miles on their own. This includes jogging, walking, biking, or any exercise of choice.
To incentivize each participant to complete the challenge, John F. Kouten, CEO, JFK Communications, Inc. pledged to donate a dollar for every mile completed. With five team members (Jamie Hipple, Jessica Stanek, Christine Stergiou, Ashley Reed and John F. Kouten) each going 100 miles, JFK Communications raised a total of $500 for Komen CSNJ!
“I am proud that our employees conceived #MilesforKomen! This small fundraising initiative aligns with our long-standing mission to support Komen of Central & South Jersey,” said John F. Kouten, CEO, JFK Communications, Inc. “I love this challenge because it’s fun and it also helps us train for the upcoming Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.”
JFK Communications announced the donation during its corporate outing at the Somerset Patriots stadium on Friday, July 24, 2015. The Somerset Patriots also mentioned the Komen Central & South Jersey Race for the Cure on the jumbo-tron during the game.
“We hope our #MilesForKomen campaign motivates everyone to sign up and donate to the upcoming Race for the Cure,” said Jessica Stanek, Account Executive, JFK Communications and Race for the Cure Marketing Chairman. “I am honored and privileged to be able to serve Komen and to support women and families battling breast cancer.”
