SECURA fights breast cancer

Appleton, Wis. (October 3, 2014) —

SECURA Insurance and its associates, network of independent agents, and Facebook fans are making a difference in the fight against breast cancer through its sixth annual One by One campaign. Last year's campaign saw the company's total donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) top $100,000, and it is expected to exceed $130,000 in 2014.

To kick off October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the fountain in front of SECURA's home office on Memorial Drive in Appleton, Wis. turned pink at dusk, and will remain so throughout the month. Nearly 200 associates also participated in a pink relay. Throughout the entire day on Oct. 1, associates wore pink and walked to raise awareness of breast cancer and honor loved ones affected by the disease.

Kathy Oudenhoven, a 30-year employee at SECURA who is now approaching her 5-year anniversary of being cancer free, joined in the relay. "The first One by One campaign was just being wrapped up when I heard the words 'you have breast cancer,'" she said. "Many of us have someone close in our lives affected by the disease, so the funds being raised by the One by One campaign are important to all of us. I will never be able to thank SECURA and my co-workers enough for the support I was given while going through treatments."

Some of the company's contributions to the BCRF are linked to its social media efforts. During the month of October, it will donate a dollar for each new "like" of its Facebook page, and contribute even more when people "pinkify" their profile picture with the use of a special app, also available on their Facebook page. Shares, posts, and other engagement in October will account for even more donations by the company.

The efforts of SECURA's partnership with independent agents account for the highest contributions toward the cause. For each new MILE-STONE® home and auto insurance policy and Specialty Lines account written between Aug. 1 and Oct. 31, 2014, the carrier will donate money to the BCRF.
