October 24, 2014 — The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about the value of chiropractic care, is honored to be selected as the charity of choice to benefit from a friendly social media competition between Cleveland Chiropractic College, Kansas City (CCCKC) and Palmer College of Chiropractic’s San Jose campus. The college rivalry, focused on the conclusion of the 2014 World Series with the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants, officially kicked off via Facebook on Oct. 21, 2014.
“This battle serves as a good-spirited way to better engage our campus communities, while simultaneously contributing to a well-deserved charity,” agreed William Meeker, DC, president of Palmer’s San Jose Campus, and Carl S. Cleveland III, DC, president of CCCKC. “The work of the F4CP in educating the public about chiropractic is acknowledged throughout the profession; hence it was selected as the recipient of the donations.”
The parameters of the competition are as follows:
- CCCKC and Palmer’s San Jose campus to donate $100 to the F4CP for each run scored by the opposing cities’ home teams.
- To support student activities, each college’s Student Council will receive $100 per run scored by their hometown team from the Alumni Association of the other college.
- Palmer’s San Jose campus to send CCCKC a case of California wine for each loss.
- CCCKC to send Palmer’s San Jose campus a case of Kansas City BBQ sauce and Boulevard Beer for each loss.
Follow-through on all commitments will take place at the close of the 2014 World Series at the winning teams’ campus.
“To be chosen as the charity of choice helps further solidify the ongoing importance and influence of the F4CP campaign,” F4CP chairman Kent S. Greenawalt said. “We admire the innovative activity and look forward to an exciting World Series when the F4CP and the profession’s positive press campaign is a winner!”
