Swaayed is inviting social influencers across the United States to join the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign

NEW YORK, Oct. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Swaayed, the influencer-powered peer marketing platform, has partnered

with the American Cancer Society (ACS) as the proud social media sponsor for seven of the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (MSABC) walks, including Boston, Washington, D.C., Brooklyn, Long Island and Central Park, Los Angeles and Silicon Valley-San Jose.

Swaayed is inviting social influencers with at least 10,000 followers across the United States to join the campaign and help save lives, fund cancer research and raise awareness this fall. With a goal of raising a million dollars for ACS/MSABC by October 26, social influencers will also be given the opportunity to earn money for participating in the campaign, while having the option to donate their proceeds back to the cause.

"Because of the determination of Making Strides supporters, the American Cancer Society is there for people in every community affected by breast cancer. We're excited to partner with Swaayed to help us unite even more communities in raising awareness and funds to end this disease," said Vicky Green, strategic director of community development for the American Cancer Society, Northeast Region.

Alan Avidan, PhD, CEO and Cofounder of Swaayed added: "We are thrilled to partner with ACS, leading the fight against breast cancer - the most common cancer in women (ex. Skin cancer) with over a quarter million new cases a year - touching almost every family. We are grateful ACS has chosen Swaayed to tap into the power of social media influencers to amplify the amazing work with MSABC that they have been doing for over 25 years."

Swaayed will promote participation of each of the following walks, to take place on/at:

  • DCR Hatch Shell, 47 David G Mugar Way Boston, Mass. (took place) on September 29
  • Coney Island Boardwalk, 1904 Surf Ave Brooklyn, New York on October 20

Swaayed's campaign will usher in a new era of influencer marketing for ACS, with Dr. Avidan adding: "There are thousands of creators who have grown and cultivated communities filled with so much goodwill and love, and these communities can be harnessed to help charities and non-profits like ACS raise more funds and increase engagement with new audiences."

Making Strides raises more than $60 million for the American Cancer Society each year, with more than $870 million raised for the fight against breast cancer since 1993. Dollars raised help the American Cancer Society fund innovative breast cancer research; provide education and guidance to help people reduce their risk; and offer comprehensive patient support to those who need it most.
