Canon U.S.A. Announces Fall Lineup of Community Activities
MELVILLE, N.Y. -- September 26, 2013
Kicking off the fall season as part of the Company’s ongoing commitment to the
Long Island community, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging
solutions, is proud to announce several local sponsorships for fall 2013.
“One of Canon's strongest beliefs is to be active in the communities that we
serve by working with local activities and programs,” said Bunji Yano, senior
director and general manager, Corporate Communications Division, Canon U.S.A.
“We are proud to support many local organizations in the Long Island area,
where our Americas Headquarters is based.”
The initiatives of the 2013 fall season include:
*Special Olympics New York 2013: More than 400 athletes from Long Island,
New York City and the Hudson Valley are scheduled to participate in the
Special Olympics New York Fall Classic on Sept. 28, featuring competitions
in bocce, cross-country running, golf, soccer and softball. Cantiague Park
in Hicksville, N.Y., will host golf and the team sports, while the
Hicksville Firehouse Station #3 will host bocce and the skills sports,
including kicking skills for soccer and throwing skills for softball.
Canon employees will have the opportunity to volunteer to assist athletes
in getting to their sporting events, cheer on participants or help with
the awards ceremony. In addition, Canon will sponsor the Special Olympics
Long Island Floor Hockey Champions Challenge at Suffolk County Community
College on Nov. 17.
The Company also sponsored Special Olympics New York for the 2013 Spring Games
North, earlier this year, where the Canon printer marketing group printed
participation certificates for each athlete, along with photos of the
athletes, taken with Canon cameras.
*American Cancer Society: Since 1998, Canon U.S.A. has been a Flagship
sponsor of the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, which includes
donating funds and encouraging employee participation in the annual walk
at Jones Beach in Wantagh, N.Y. for breast cancer research. This year’s
walk will take place on Oct. 20.
*New York Islanders: Canon has renewed its marketing and sponsorship
agreement with the Long Island-based National Hockey League (NHL) team. As
part of the sponsorship, the Canon logo will be displayed on the dasher
boards at all Islander home games.
In addition to the sponsorships listed above, Canon U.S.A. supports a wide
range of local Long Island organizations including the Huntington Summer Arts
Festival and the Eisenhower Park Summertime Concert Series. Furthermore,
through its annual Clean Earth Crew Campaign, Canon U.S.A. employees volunteer
to help maintain and preserve some of Long Island’s most beautiful parks and
beaches. This year’s Clean Earth Crew Campaign was held on Sept. 21 at West
Hills County Park in Suffolk County, where employees helped restore trails,
