SPONSORS - LETTER FROM CO-FOUNDERS
The Joy to Life Foundation provides free mammograms and other breast cancer screenings, when necessary, to medically underserved women and men in Alabama, provides limited grants when needed, builds and supports breast cancer awareness among all Alabamians, and promotes over-all health, well being, and education throughout the state.
Since being founded in 2001, over 13,000 mammograms have been provided and over 150 women and 6 men have been successfully treated! But the fight has just begun!!
Over the past 16 years, the Joy to Life Foundation has greatly increased awareness and has continued to teach the importance of early detection. The reality is - - there are not enough state funds available to help the medically underserved Alabamians who need assistance. That is why the mission of the Joy to Life Foundation has become so important.
Live Here. Give Here.
We want your company to be a part of this mission. We want your company name to stand with other leading area businesses, as together we continue to raise awareness for breast cancer in Alabama and continue to provide these lifesaving screenings to our friends and neighbors.
Every spring, the Joy to Life Foundation hosts the Walk of Life, a 5K/10K Run/Walk in downtown Montgomery. The Walk of Life has grown from 300 participants in its first year to over 6,000 people on site in recent years, and each year we raise over $200,000! That sounds plentiful, but truthfully, it only makes a small impression in the funding needed in our state.
Please review the new sponsorship levels and join us in sponsoring the 2017 Walk of Life. Together, our partnership will enhance your company’s market visibility, and your contribution will make a direct impact in the fight against breast cancer right here in Alabama.
It would be our great pleasure to partner with you for the 2017 Walk of Life.
