DOCOMO PACIFIC honors Survivors & Caregivers at Relay for Life

TAMUNING, GUAM – In support of the American Cancer Society’s Annual Relay for Life, DOCOMO PACIFIC is honored to serve as the official sponsor of Survivors and Caregivers.

"At a time when our island rallies together to raise awareness about an issue that has impacted all of our lives in some way, DOCOMO PACIFIC is truly dedicated to investing in the battle against cancer," said Jonathan Kriegel, CEO & President of DOCOMO PACIFIC.

This marks the second consecutive year that DOCOMO PACIFIC has reserved this special opportunity to sponsor the Survivors and Caregivers.

DOCOMO PACIFIC associates will volunteer to check in Survivors and Caregivers while providing hospitality and good cheer at their official tent featuring open seating, buffet style dining courtesy of DOCOMO PACIFIC, a photobooth for memorable moments courtesy of Rendezvooth and plenty of Paint Your Purple themed décor!

In addition to support at Relay for Life, DOCOMO PACIFIC’s commitment to cancer awareness spans:

  • Survivor and Caregiver registration at DOCOMO PACIFIC locations
  • Registration at the Survivor Luncheon
  • In-kind media support to promote Relay for Life
  • Survivor t-shirts at United Plane Pull & DOCOMO PACIFIC team participation
  • DOCOMO PACIFIC team participation at 76 Paddles for a Cure

As part of our fundraising activities, DOCOMO PACIFIC departments also set a goal to collectively raise $6,500.00 for the American Cancer Society. Associates sold everything from raffle tickets for a chance to win a GoPro to snacks and lunch plates in order to show their support.

And one of our most meaningful contributions is DOCOMO PACIFIC’s "Battle Together" fund that was established last year for patients who are actively diagnosed with cancer. Patients are able to coordinate with the American Cancer Society to solicit support from DOCOMO PACIFIC for assistance with mobile, cable or internet services during their time of need – especially when having to go off-island for treatment.

DOCOMO PACIFIC earmarks up to $15,000.00 to the "Battle Together" fund.

With our efforts also serving to showcase DOCOMO PACIFIC’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, it means everything to us to join in this community endeavor.

Additionally, DOCOMO PACIFIC will be providing free WiFi at the Relay for Life so participants can post and share all of their special moments…for free!
