Olympus Helps With Cancer Fundraising
- Part of sales of VG-160 go to research
- Available from mid-March
- Available across Australia
Olympus Imaging Australia has today announced its partnership with Can Too, a not-for-profit organisation that raises funds for cancer research.
The Olympus Special Edition Can Too VG-160 Orange digital camera has been released especially to support the partnership, with a portion of proceeds to be donated to Can Too.
Can Too is a fitness and fund-raising program that trains beginners and experienced athletes alike with professional coaches to achieve a swimming or running goal they never thought possible. In return, participants are asked to raise funds that go towards funding cancer researchers through Cure Cancer Australia.
Marc Radatt, managing director, Olympus Imaging Australia, has long admired the work of Can Too. “I became aware of Can Too whilst taking part in the Olympus Tough Fine Ocean Swimmers Series. Olympus is proud to be associated with an organisation that combines health and well-being, social interaction and inclusion of every day folks into a fund raising initiative for cancer research. We hope our partnership will provide a boost to Can Too’s fund-raising efforts for Cure Cancer Australia.”
Since its inception in 2005, Can Too has raised millions of dollars for vital seed funding to support young researchers with innovative ideas. Olympus saw this partnership as an opportunity to contribute additional funding to an important cause.
The VG-160 is a compact digital camera with functionality and features designed for everyday users. Featuring a 5x zoom lens, compact all-metal body and functional instant Movie Record button, the Orange VG-160 is designed to capture and share memories.
The special edition Can Too VG-160 cameras will be identified with the special Can Too sticker on their boxes. They will be available from photographic and consumer electronics retailers across Australia from mid-March, while stocks last
