CONTIKI PARTNERS WITH KROQ AND AMP RADIO TO BUILD BETHEMATCH.ORG BONE MARROW REGISTRY
All New Registrants Will Be Entered-To-Win a Contiki Vacation Package
Anaheim, California, April 26, 2010 – Contiki Vacations, the leader in fun travel packages for 18-35 year olds, is proud to partner with 97.1 AMP Radio and 106.7 KROQ to promote the “Be the Match” campaign for National Bone Marrow Research. The nine-week promotion gives high school and college students the opportunity to win a London and Paris Contiki vacation package for registering with bethematch.org.
Through the month of May, AMP and KROQ will visit college and high school campuses around Los Angeles to register students on-site. A total of 30 events will take place, each of which will include contest registrations for students to win the Contiki vacation. By signing up for the Be The Match Registry, participants are added to a list that is searched by doctors around the world looking for donor matches. Information about the specific dates and times of these events can be found on the radio stations’ websites and heard weekly via on-air announcements.
The selected donor registrant will be awarded a Contiki trip to London and Paris, which includes eight days of sightseeing, accommodations, transportation and daily meals. The chosen registrant will visit historical sites such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Big Ben and Stonehenge. With plenty of flexibility and free time built into the trip, the winners will have time to explore the streets of London, visit the local pubs, and take in the beautiful Parisian scenery.
Contiki has helped students and young professionals travel to the world’s most fantastic destinations for over 45 years. The trips are hassle-free and include the perfect mix of sightseeing, culture and free time. Choose from over 190 trips throughout Europe, Russia, Egypt, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Canada & the USA.
