Launch Mobile App for the Cure
Kansas City, Mo. Mobile experience company Why Status Quo Inc., in partnership with
Susan G. Komen for the Cure Greater Kansas City, is pleased to announce the Mobile App for the Cure, launched to coincide with Kansas City’s Race for the Cure, which will be held on August 12, 2012, in Kansas City, Mo.
The mobile application provides up-to-the-minute information on the KC Race for the Cure and allows users to share tributes in celebration or in memory of breast cancer survivors. Features of the mobile app also include an interactive map of the race course, information on logistics, race schedules and a tribute wall that is also re-posted on the Komen Kansas City Facebook page. The app was provided as a corporate donation to the Komen affiliate by Why Status Quo.
“My own family has been deeply affected by breast cancer and I wanted to create a useful and memorable tool for those also touched by the disease,” said Vince Vaughan, founder and CEO of Why Status Quo. “The Komen mobile app was designed not just for one day, but to help the community stay engaged and connected year-round in the fight against breast cancer.”
“We are grateful for the generous donation of this communications tool to help us share immediate updates with participants in the race, but it doesn’t stop there,” said Komen Greater Kansas City executive director Lori Maris. “We have a number of ideas to continue using this app throughout the year to share important messages and to educate the community about breast health.”
The app is provided free of charge. iPhone users can download the app through iTunes and Android users can download it at the Google Play store.
