24 June 2015 (Chapel Hill, NC, USA) – As an exhibitor at the DIA 51st Annual Meeting in Washington, DC last week, CROS NT raised funds and awareness for the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) with its #CROSNTFit campaign. The WCRF is CROS NT’s 2015 sponsored charity.
Throughout the DIA Annual Meeting, CROS NT pledged to donate three dollars for every business card collected or badge scanned at its booth. This week CROS NT carried out its commitment by making a donation to the WCRF organization.
CROS NT also launched its #CROSNTFit summer challenge at the DIA Annual Meeting to raise awareness about WCRF’s cause of linking physical activity to cancer prevention. The #CROSNTFit summer challenge encourages daily physical activity and asks people to post fitness tips, including workout summaries and photos, to social media websites using the hashtag #CROSNTFit and the best tip every month from June through August will win a FitBit Fitness Tracker.
Chris Hamilton, Global Head of Business Development & Marketing, said, “WCRF’s vision of being a leader in research on preventative cancer is inspiring in our field of work where we see an increase in drug development companies commencing oncology studies. As we travel around the world to various conferences, we see an opportunity to spread awareness about WCRF’s important message”.
