Reed & Associates Marketing strongly believes in the philosophy of giving back and enjoys being an active member of the community. Just look at what we accomplished in 2016! We choose to donate time, professional services and financial contributions in support of various philanthropic endeavors, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore, Crush Cancer, VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads, The Virginia Gentlemen Foundation and many more. As a result of our commitment to philanthropy, Reed & Associates Marketing was named a 2014 Corporate VOLUNTEER Excellence Award honoree.
We are always looking to help nonprofits in the Hampton Roads community, or nationwide. If you know of a nonprofit that would be interested in working with us, please email Info@ReedandAssociatesMarketing.com.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. We are passionate about giving back to St. Jude in a multitude of ways, helping them work to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade. Since inception, R&A has raised and donated over $65,000 in support of this fight. Every year, supporters in 61 communities join together in the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer to raise funds for St. Jude. This family-friendly walk/run helps raise funds to support the lifesaving mission of the hospital, where no family ever receives a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food. This past September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, marks the seventh year the R&A team has participated in the annual walk. R&A increased its involvement as a Flagship Partner and has raised over $17,500 for the hospital, earning its place as Hampton Roads no. 1 fundraiser for the fourth year in a row. We’re excited to join in the fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases for the 2017 St. Jude Walk/Run on September 23.

FOODBANK OF SOUTHEASTERN VIRGINIA AND THE EASTERN SHORE
The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization registered as tax-exempt with the IRS. It is one of the 200 network member food banks of Feeding America®, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief charity. You can support the Foodbank in many ways: donating food, funds or time. We are honored to support the Foodbank as a previous sponsor of their Taste of Hampton Roads event, as well as food donations through the Mayflower Marathon each November (over 700 pounds to date!). Additionally, R&A has recently volunteered its time, providing meals to local individuals and families in need. Each of these efforts help to eliminate hunger in our community.
The high-energy, indoor cycling event was created with the determination to beat rare cancers by powering groundbreaking research. Since then, Cycle for Survival has become a national movement with events hosted annually in more than 20 communities around the country.
Since its inception, Cycle for Survival has raised more than $105 million, including $30 million in 2016.
Rosemary Wilson and Tony Nero, with the help of colleagues and friends, brought Cycle for Survival to Virginia Beach (locally known as Crush Cancer, benefiting Cycle for Survival) in May 2015 where more than 400 local participants joined the battle against rare cancers.
