The Wakeman Agency was named a 2019 Mercury Award winner by the Greater Connecticut Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) in the media relations category. This was the third Mercury Award win for The Wakeman Agency in recognition of impactful campaigns we’ve created for great causes!
Wakeman’s work for Help For Children publicized Run2Heal, an amazing 3,000-mile cross country run by an endurance athlete to fight child abuse. With coast-to-coast media coverage (80+ placements) that included People, USA Today, Runners World, Daily News, “Inside Edition,” ABC-TV, Fox, and major radio stations, we created a national dialogue on this issue. Our case study reveals how we elevated Help For Children to gain national recognition as a leading force in the fight against child abuse. Many thanks to PRSA for the honor!
