America's Best Business/Nonprofit Partnerships Recognized at Fifth Annual Cause Marketing Halo Awards(TM)

May 18 /CSRwire/ - NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 18, 2007--Boost Mobile RockCorps (BMRC), the national youth volunteerism movement that since 2005 has motivated more than 16,000 young people to get involved and help their communities, was honored yesterday at the Fifth Annual Cause Marketing Forum conference for "Best Cause Marketing Event" in 2006.

The 2006 BMRC program held volunteer projects in Atlanta, Houston, Chicago, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Detroit, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. By the end of the 2006 tour, Boost Mobile RockCorps volunteers had contributed approximately 40,000 hours of community service and transformed close to 125 project sites in eight cities across the country.

"BMRC is much more than a series of volunteer events and concerts; it is an 'around the way revolution,' inspiring young adults to take an active role in improving the world around them," said Daryl Butler, Boost Mobile.

"The success of BMRC is a testament to the great work our volunteers do and their desire to connect with each other through the power of music," commented Grady Lee, chief operating officer, RockCorps. "We look forward to expanding the program even further this year."
