Bayer Consumer Care launches virtual march against breast cancer


MORRISTOWN, N.J. Bayer Consumer Care last week announced an initiative encouraging women to join a virtual march against breast cancer as part of its One A Day Women’s Take A Stand Campaign.

Through the end of October, women will have the opportunity to show that they’re taking a stand against breast cancer by going to, and creating a customizable character in honor of someone special.

According to a recent Yankelovich survey, although a large majority of women know there are simple steps they can take to support breast health, few women are taking the necessary actions. As many as 80% of the women surveyed have been personally affected by breast cancer or know someone who has been.

The survey also found that 1-in-5 women who support breast health or breast cancer awareness causes wish they could do more, and 60% of women who have not supported breast cancer organizations and causes say they lack the time or money.

“Joining the Take A Stand virtual march provides a quick, easy and free way for women to help raise funds to support breast cancer awareness and research,” Bayer stated. “For each character created, the One A Day brand will make a donation to a breast cancer cause that will be determined by an online vote.”

The organizations to be included in that vote are: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the American Cancer Society and the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

“This program is part of our continued efforts to increase awareness about the importance of supporting breast health,” stated Barton Warner, VP marketing and new business for Bayer Consumer Care. “Last year One A Day Women’s woke women up about breast cancer through the One A Day Women’s Wake-Up Call program, and now it’s time women answer the call by taking a stand.”
