On Sunday, September, 25 in Newport Beach, more than 22,000 race participants walked the 5k race/walk course supporting the 20th Annual Orange County Race for the Cure event. Each year the race brings in millions of dollars to help fight breast cancer as a life threatening disease. The OC Komen Affiliate is among the top Komen Affiliates in the country raising awareness and money towards the cause.
Mobile Edge is a proud corporate partner with Susan G. Komen for the Cure nationally, as well as a close local partner with the OC Affiliate. Mobile Edge is a Diamond Sponsor with a donation of $15,000 to the local affiliate, donating 2,000 Cancer Survivor Bags and other Komen Laptop Bags to fundraisers achieving specific bench marks.
During the race, Mobile Edge had a booth and was giving away three different laptop cases to participants who stopped by. More than 300 individuals signed up to win. The winners of the drawing will be announced this week.
“It is a surreal experience to interact with actual breast cancer survivors that are Mobile Edge customers,” said Noni Darakhshan, Director of Education Sales at Mobile Edge. “It makes me proud to be a part of a company that supports such a worthy and important cause.”
Mobile Edge created the Caring Case Collection, which is comprised of pink-themed laptop bags all toting the symbolic pink breast cancer ribbon. Mobile Edge donates 10 percent of the retail selling price of each case in the Caring Case Collection directly to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.
Mobile Edge is proud to announce that since 2004, we have been a proud corporate partner with the Foundation and have contributed more than $300,000 to the fight against breast cancer.
