Three companies have jumped into the sponsors’ bandwagon for the Commonwealth Cancer Association’s signature fundraising event of the year.

Joeten Daidai Foundation has signed up as a title sponsor, while Xerox and Brabu Pharmacy agreed to become major sponsors for the 2015 Marianas March Against Cancer.

Xerox bumped up its donations this year by donating $1,500 and Brabu Pharmacy donated $1,000. Joeten Daidai donated $5,000 worth of cash and in-kind donations.

“On behalf of the MMAC committee and CCA, we’re thankful to Xerox, Brabu, and Joeten for their continued support,” said MMAC overall committee chair Diana I. Benavente.

“It’s because of companies like them who are the reason we are able to do what we do from the resources that they graciously donate to our event. They continue to be our motivation to work together to fight this terrible disease,” she added.

Businesses, individuals, and organizations that also wish to support the 2015 MMAC may donate funds, services, or raffle items. Sponsorship levels include title sponsor (donating $3,000 or more), major sponsor (donating $1,000 to $2,999), or supporting sponsorship (donating $1 to $999).

This year’s event will be held at the Hopwood Junior High School field from May 1 to 2. Money raised from MMAC is used by CCA to promote cancer awareness and prevention, provide patient support services, and serve as the liaison and advocate for cancer issues in the CNMI.
