CHICAGO, ILLINOIS (September 22, 2013) On November 23rd, 2013, supporters in more than 75 cities across the country will join together to participate in the annual Give Thanks Walk. GreenSigns has signed on as a local sponsor to display an interactive promotional campaign as the event draws nearer. In addition, the team is excited to begin their own fundraising efforts for the Chicago 5K that will take place at Soldier Field. Last year, more than 1,100 St. Jude Supporters attended the Chicago-area events, raising more than $120,000.
St. Jude is an organization that is committed to their mission of advancing cures and means of prevention for pediatric catastrophic disease through research and treatment. Proceeds of this walk benefit their mission and assures that no family treated through St. Jude ever receives a bill. With an average of $1.8 million in daily operating costs, GreenSigns is taking to the streets of Chicago with their digital displays to help fundraise and promote the Give Thanks Walk. GreenSigns has promoted the goal of surpassing 1,000 registrants by utilizing the flexibility features available to the digital displays with updating Chicagoans as the number of participants increase, in addition to encouraging participation and fundraising. In addition, team GreenSigns will host a tent to visit for fun and prizes located on the sponsor level prior to and after the walk.
