White House Marketing shows support for Cystic Fibrosis Fighters and attends OC Great Strides Walk

White House Marketing continues to show support for those fighting different illnesses; and, Cystic Fibrosis is a major life-threatening disease. To bring in awareness for this critical disease, representatives attended OC Great Strides Event.

Press Release (ePRNews.com) – CORONA, Calif. – May 31, 2017 – “One of our employees came to me stating that her friend’s daughter has been fighting Cystic Fibrosis for almost ten years and they are doing a walk for donations in Oklahoma,”declared Randy W., the president of White House Marketing. “Knowing that we wouldn’t be able to fly everyone to Oklahoma for the walk, I decided to send representatives to Huntington Beach Great Strides so we could indirectly help this little girl, Kaitlyn.”

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening genetic disease that ravages the lungs and digestive system. Many CF fighters spend most days medicated and masked. Because of the attack on the immune system, it is very easy for CF fighters to become violently ill from the common cold. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the leading contributor to finding a cure and modern medicines that can help to provide relief for CF fighters.

Great Strides in Huntington Beach was held on May 21st in Orange County. The event was to raise money for a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. All of the vendors were volunteers from major corporations who donated. BJ’s Steakhouse provided pizza to all those in attendance. Water and hand sanitizer was provided by Walgreens and other companies. Orange County Fire Departments brought fire trucks for the children to get inside. Several popular singers showed up to donate their time and talent and show their support for the CF fighters.

Great Strides has events all over the nation throughout the year. Small donations are just as important as those making large donations. Every little bit helps. This particular event raised $338,926. The Oklahoma City Great Strides event (held on May 13th) raised $107,894. All donations go directly to finding a cure and new developments in technology to attack this terrible disease.

Recognizing Kaitlyn Callahan: Kaitlyn Callahan was diagnosed with CF when she was an infant. “I remember the day when I found out…here I come Google. I tried to find out everything I could to try and understand what my friends were going through. Over the years, they’ve had so many scares and so many weeks in hospitals. But, what amazes me most is that this little girl is so grateful for every happy breath she takes. A local news station did a story on her and she was holding up a peace sign with all kinds of wires and tubes connected to her body…if people were half as happy as this little girl…(smiles)…. Kaitlyn turned 10 years old on May 30th. And, all of her family and friends are blessed for another year. Happy birthday, Kaitlyn! #SaltyKat” said a close Callahan friend that works for White House Marketing in Corona.

White House Marketing supports Epilepsy Awareness and Autism Awareness

CORONA, CA White House Marketings president is an avid supporter of bringing awareness to different charities for those suffering with different disabilities, challenges, and handicaps.

 

“Everyone knows someone—whether a family member or friend—that suffers from some type of illness,” declared Randy W., the president of White House Marketing. “I think its important to know your employees and know what is important to them.”

 

Purple Day is celebrated annually on March 26th. Although November is Epilepsy Awareness Month, every year countries all over the world come together to spread awareness on people who suffer with epilepsy. It is estimated that one in every 100 people suffer from epilepsy, which is approximately 50 million people worldwide.

 

The teams of direct marketing representatives and managers have an opportunity to see thousands of people each day. As he put it, “There may not always be an event for all our offices to attend; but, by wearing a simple ribbon, it draws curiosity about epilepsy awareness to those masses.”

 

It was not a requirement to wear a purple ribbon on March 26th; an employee started participating in it years ago. “People would ask her every March 26th ‘what is the ribbon for?’ continued Randy. “Now, years later, every single person—without being asked to—wore a ribbon on March 26th.”

 

White House Marketing representatives attend Walk In The Vines for Autism

 

April is Autism Awareness month. On April 2, 2017, several White House Marketing representatives attended Walk In The Vines for Autism. This event is held each year in Temecula, California. WHM representatives enjoyed the beautiful two mile walk, hot air balloons, and scenic views of Temecula’s Wine Country at the annual walk. According to the coordinator of Walk In the Vines for Autism, approximately 1,000 walkers were present and about 50,000 dollars was raised to go towards families with an Autistic person in the household.

 

Walk In The Vines for Autism is coordinated by Our Nicholas Foundation. Our Nicholas Foundation was started by a local family whose son, Nicholas was diagnosed with autism at a young age. So, his parents started Our Nicholas Foundation to promote Autism Awareness and provide support for families and programs for those diagnosed with Autism. One representative stated, “It is an honor to be a part of a company that has such a good heart. As the father of an autistic son, many companies don’t understand the struggles that go along with inabilities to communicate with your only child. Knowing that Foundations like Our Nicholas Foundation works to help families like mine…well, it touches my heart; I’m so proud to be attending this event today.”
