Faro Launches Breast Cancer Research Campaign

October 11, 2011

LAKE MARY, FL– FARO Technologies, a global provider of portable measurement and imaging solutions, announces the launch of the Real Men Wear Pink campaign, which includes an online message board to raise money for breast cancer research. Visitors to www.faro.com/wearpink are invited to add their names and messages to the Web site in support of finding a cure for the disease. FARO will donate $5 to charity for each message received. The Lake Mary, FL-based company joins a growing number of American manufacturers in the fight against breast cancer.

“Everybody knows someone who has been diagnosed-with or impacted-by breast cancer, and we as manufacturers are no different,” says Kimberly Roman, FARO’s director of Marketing for the Americas. “Our goal for this campaign is obviously to generate donations for an important cause. We also want to show that even the manufacturing industry, with its hardened and tough image, has a soft spot to help cure those affected by this terrible disease.”

The Real Men Wear Pink message board will be available at 8 a.m. EST on Thursday, Oct. 20. To add a reminder to your calendar, visit www.faro.com/wearpink , or visit the site directly on October 20.
