(December 10, 2013) – This year Cellcom held Project Innovate contests in two of its markets: the Fox Valley and Sheboygan County. Sheboygan County Christian High School was announced as the winner of Cellcom’s Project Innovate Sheboygan County today. The school will receive $15,000 from Cellcom for the purchase of classroom technology. In October, Cellcom invited 15 public and private high schools in Sheboygan County to participate in the community voting challenge; four schools chose to participate.

Sheboygan Area Lutheran High School was the first prize winner in Project Innovate and will receive $5,000.

“Cellcom’s ultimate goal is to give back to education locally,” said Brighid Riordan, director of Public Affairs for Cellcom. “Equipping a school with the latest technology is high on the wish list of many educators and students, but budget concerns can make these items less attainable. Project Innovate aims to bridge the gap and give schools the opportunity to create the ultimate classroom.”

Project Innovate winners were determined by the number of qualified votes cast for each school during the month-long voting period, October 21 – November 22. The community voting program hinged on schools mobilizing their supporters. To be successful in Project Innovate, schools had to tell as many people as they could to vote and be creative in rallying supporters.

“This is the fourth year we’ve held Project Innovate and it’s always exciting to see the creativity students and teachers put into the challenge,” said Riordan. “The key to success in Project Innovate is to tell as many people as can to vote for your school. Both of our top schools mobilized early and their hard work paid off.”

Green Bay, WI (November 12, 2013) – The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon has announced Golden House as its new charity partner for 2014-16. Golden House will join Unity and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeastern Wisconsin as the recipient of funds raised by the 15th annual Cellcom Green Bay Marathon, which will take place May 16-18, 2014.

The charities operate on three-year terms, with one new charity added each year and one exiting charity each year. Charity organizations become a strong member of the operational team, comprised primarily of volunteers, to put on this event.

“We are very thankful to have been chosen as a charity partner for the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon. The partnership will allow Golden House to move forward with plans to meet the longer-term shelter needs of victims of domestic violence and their children,” said Karen Faulkner, executive director of Golden House. “This is an excellent opportunity to support victims on their path to becoming survivors and for our community to come together and say ‘no more’ to domestic violence." 

The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon aims to support a community need when selecting a charity partner and chooses a charity partner that can effectively utilize the marathon’s platform.

“Golden House is the only agency in Brown County that offers emergency shelter and comprehensive support services for victims of domestic abuse,” said Brighid Riordan, president of the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon board of directors. “The community relies heavily on this organization and the marathon looks forward to partnering with Golden House to raise funds and awareness for this cause.”

The organization has a proven positive impact. In 2012, over 1,500 individuals found assistance with outreach services from Golden House, more than 500 adult victims and children found refuge in its shelter, over 6,500 callers reached out to the group’s 24-hour helpline, and more than 17,000 students were taught about healthy relationships and domestic violence prevention.

In 2013, the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon donated $102,000 to its three charity partners. Over the past 14 years, the non-profit event has generated over $776,000 in proceeds for local non-profits.

To pledge to run for Golden House or another charity partner, runners can sign-up for the Run for a Reason program, which allows participants to raise funds for the marathon’s partners in exchange for a free entry into the marathon or half marathon. Participants must raise $300 to receive their free entry and all funds go directly to the charities. Registration for this program and the 2014 Cellcom Green Bay Marathon opened today.
