#WWE #TheVFoundation Knocking Out Pediatric Cancer

#WWE #TheVFoundation Knocking Out Pediatric Cancer

Many of you who follow along with Main Street Mama know that we are a #WWEFamily. When I first  became a #WWEMoms my son was becoming a #wrestlingaddict.  I was fortunate to be invited to meet WWE Chief Brand Officer and mom of 3 Stephanie McMahon. Upon meeting Steph we were introduced further to the WWE Brand. WWE was striving to incorporate family values back into their sports entertainment business. Those values start at the corporate level and trickle down to the athletes and to the fans. It’s one of the things we love most about WWE.

Shortly after becoming a #WWEMoms, WWE established Connor’s Cure . Connor’s Cure was established in honor of 8-year-old WWE fan Connor Michalek, a patient at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC who battled medulloblastoma, a rare tumor that affects the brain and spinal cord. To date, Connor’s Cure has raised nearly $1 million and assisted more than 100 families around the world. I will never forget our first WWE event where we learned about Connors Cure my than 6.5 yr old rested his head on my shoulder and cried. Later that night he came to me with $50.00 from his own wallet and asked me to buy a Connor’s Cure bracelet for all his friends.

This past week WWE and The V Foundation announced  a multi-year partnership.

The new partnership will expand Connor’s Cure outside of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation and support other top research centers and hospitals nationwide. As a result of the new partnership, funds raised by WWE will support Connor’s Cure through The V Foundation’s grant-making process. The V Foundation’s Scientific Advisory Committee, comprised of world-class physicians and research scientists, vets and awards top-rated grant proposals from the nation’s leading medical facilities. In addition, funding will continue to support the research being done at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.

WWE is committed to raising awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research throughout the year through the sale of Connor’s Cure bracelets, fundraising programs and through its global platforms including WWE Network and TV broadcasts, live events, and digital and social media.

Every year, 12,000-15,000 children are newly diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. Through the efforts of The V Foundation, progress is being made with cure rates for most pediatric cancers dramatically improving. The V Foundation has awarded nearly $20 million through 66 pediatric research grants to-date, including more than $5 million to pediatric cancer research in 2015.

NBC Universal and WWE today unveiled a comprehensive  campaign, “For The Hero In All of Us,” that will air across NBC Universal’s expansive network of two broadcast networks, 17 cable channels and more than 50 digital properties in addition to all of WWE’s platforms. In conjunction, NBC Universal and WWE will engage consumers through #MyHeroIs inviting fans to name their favorite WWE Superstars and share personal and inspirational stories of heroism.

In addition, advertisers can work with NBC Universal and WWE in new ways to tap into the scale and reach of WWE’s multimedia platforms, which all deliver a TV-PG family-centric, multigenerational and multicultural audience. As part of the suite of NBC Universal and WWE assets offered together for the first time, the companies have created bigger, more immersive opportunities than ever before for advertisers, including multiplatform, customized and turnkey initiatives.  Advertisers will also have unprecedented access to WWE Superstars and Divas for the creation of custom on-air campaigns, in-show integrations and social campaigns.

Connor Michalek WWE’s first ever #Warrior Award Recipient

Connor Michalek  WWE’s first ever #Warrior Award Recipient

Connor Michalek, a Pittsburgh native and passionate WWE fan who passed away last year from cancer, will be the first-ever recipient of The #Warrior Award, which will be presented each year at the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.  The Warrior Award will be given to someone who has exhibited unwavering strength and perseverance, and who lives life with the courage and compassion that embodies the indomitable spirit of WWE Hall of Famer, The Ultimate Warrior.  This year, the award will be presented by The Ultimate Warrior’s widow, Dana Warrior, and WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan to Steve Michalek, Connor’s father.

WWE will present an award in my husband’s name each year at the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony,” said Dana Warrior.  “Connor displayed all of the positive traits that Warrior stood for, and he is the perfect recipient for this inaugural award. I am sure that Warrior is smiling today, knowing that this award is being given to a true warrior.”

With the love of his family and WWE Superstars as well as the tremendous care by Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, Connor battled cancer like a true warrior for as long as he could, and his charisma made him a local celebrity in Pittsburgh. Connor’s spirit inspired WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon and WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events & Creative, Paul “Triple H” Levesque to launch “Connor’s Cure,” a fund dedicated to furthering Pediatric cancer research.

 

Connors’ Cure bracelets are available to purchase for $5.00 .   Whenever we have attended a WWE event we have  purchased bracelets to support  #ConnorsCure. I must say that whenever I wear mine it symbolizes to me to take a moment and be thankful.  We try to teach our son to care for others.  Connor has touched his heart and he reminds me each time we head to a WWE Event to text our donation for Connor.   As a parent I couldn’t imagine what his parents have gone through , but I hope they know that #ConnorTheCrusher is an inspiration to this #WWEMOM and many other #Warriors.

WWE LIVE Family FUN at it’s Finest

WWE LIVE Family FUN at it’s Finest

As my son gets older I find it’s harder to be into what he is, thankfully this past year he has developed a LOVE for wrestling and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).

Signs so our superstars and Divas know we are rooting for them #wwemoms

Signs so our superstars and Divas know we are rooting for them #wwemoms

This past Friday my family and I headed to the Westchester County Center for WWE LIVE Family FUN at it’s Finest. Prior to the event we anticipated which of our favorite Superstars and Divas would be there, we made our signs and picked out our WWE Gear. Growing up in Westchester I have been to the county center for many events, but this by far was the most exciting!

WWE Live at the County Center was fun for the whole family, there were Superstars, Divas and even those crazy Wyatt’s! The night started off with the children chanting for John Cena and ended that way!! Everyone was excited to see Mark Henry the world’s strongest man beat Cesaro although we all thought the match was too short and would have loved to see Mark Henry do the Cesaro swing on Cesaro himself!

Wether your are rooting for your favorite wrestler or using in house texting to determine which type of DIVA match Natalya and Paige will have the whole family was involved.

WWE Live was an amazing night for our family. While many have asked me why I am into wresting? My answer is simple ,I am a mom of a boy and I am into what he is. WWE has made it entertainment for the whole family. All the superstars are extremely friendly both in the arena and out. I witnessed John Cena hugging an older woman who clearly would not let go and he went with the flow.

I have also had the pleasure of meeting Diva Superstar Natalya previously at a media event prior to Monday night RAW , at KidzVuz BTSBash and again on Friday as she came to take pictures with her fans. Natalya even though I was wearing a BrieMode shirt came over said hi and said she wanted to take a picture because she loved my sign.
