Think Pink this October with promotional products to help raise awareness for breast cancer. Breast Cancer continues to be a health crisis for the US, with 1 in 8 women being diagnosed in their lifetime. Continuing to promote awareness and healthy living will get us closer to saving the lives of every person diagnosed. If your company is going pink in October, we put together some top items for fundraising and giveaways.
A great way to raise awareness in your company is by supporting healthy habits. For the month of October have a competition on who can drink the most water and offer a health-related prize to everyone who participates. Measurement Water Bottle A measurement cup would pair perfectly with the water drinking competition. Give out these cups at the beginning of the competition to give your staff an easy way to keep up with how much water they are drinking. Insulated Tumbler An insulated tumbler works great for the upcoming cold weather and works even better for cold beverages during the summer. This drinkware is a great option to show support year-round.
Being active is an important part of promoting health and wellness. The American Cancer Society guidelines for cancer prevention say that regular exercise can decrease your chances of several cancers, including breast cancer. Consider hosting a weekly workout class for your staff and give away workout headbands, rally towels, and yoga mats as a participation incentive. Workout Headband A 5K race is one of the most popular ways of raising money for breast cancer research. To help fill those participant bags, a pink headband with the sponsors and a ribbon would be a great addition. Many will wear it during the race and for workouts to come, making it a great investment for your sponsors and a great tool for the participants. Rally Towel Use the rally towels as sweat towels or hand them out at a football game. Use these towels during your office workout or give them out at football games. Give out the sweat towels at the first game in October and ask people to bring the towel to every game they come to in October. Light up the crowd in pink! Yoga Mats Yoga is a great way of exercising for any age or activity level. Hold a yoga call in your office and giveaway yoga mats to all of your participants. Yoga help prevents many diseases that are common in office workers. Promoting health and wellness in your office will promote healthy living in your employees, and a better working environment. These yoga mats have plenty of color options, including pink!
Bags are a great way to relay a message to the public. Customize your bag to fit the messaging you are looking to convey.
