FORD WARRIORS IN PINK MOVES INTO THE CW NETWORK'S 90210 TO REACH YOUNGER WARRIORS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER

November 30, 2009 (Dearborn, Mich. and Burbank, Calif.) � Ford Warriors in Pink is partnering with The CW Network's 90210 to drive breast cancer awareness by reminding viewers that breast cancer affects people in all zip codes. The partnership consists of several initiatives in the fight against breast cancer, including a special episode airing December 8 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET/PT), a broadcast PSA and a series of national print ads.

By joining forces with the only network targeting women ages 18-34, Ford is reaching out to a younger audience with vital messages about breast cancer awareness and the importance of early detection. This campaign further solidifies Ford's long standing, 15-year / more than $100 million commitment to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

In the December 8 episode of 90210, Silver (series star Jessica Stroup) will become a Ford Warrior in Pink in memory of her mother Jackie Taylor (Ann Gillespie), who succumbed to breast cancer in the November 17th episode of The CW drama. She will be wearing an all-new black Ford Warriors in Pink t-shirt and asking her fellow classmates at West Beverly High to sponsor her in an upcoming Race for the Cure (5K) for breast cancer research, which she will run in her mother's honor.

Stroup is also featured in a PSA that will air during the Ford Warriors in Pink episode, driving viewers to FordCares.com to find out how they can raise awareness and join in the fight against breast cancer. The PSA will be featured on FordCares.com and cwtv.com/warriorsinpink.

"This partnership helps broaden the reach for Ford Warriors in Pink by teaming up with a powerhouse network that targets a youthful audience," said Connie Fontaine, Brand Content and Alliances manager for Ford Motor Company. "Joining forces with 90210 provides a creative way to extend the message and importance of early detection. The more people watch, the more we are able to increase awareness and raise funds though our Warriors in Pink program to help find a cure."

"The CW is so incredibly proud to partner with Ford Warriors in Pink to help raise awareness and contribute to the fight against breast cancer through this integration with 90210," said Alison Tarrant, Executive Vice President, Integrated Sales and Marketing, The CW. "This tremendously vital issue directly impacts our young female viewers and their families, and in working with Ford Warriors in Pink, we've been able to incorporate it seamlessly into the 90210 storyline in a very organic and powerful way."

To help further aid in the fight, Ford and 90210 have developed a series of print ads featuring Jessica Stroup and on-air sister Jennie Garth. Both stars appear in the ads, which remind viewers that breast cancer affects people in all zip codes, and offer real-life ways to join the fight, including becoming informed and doing self-breast exams.

Both Stroup and Garth will model pieces from the Ford Warriors in Pink apparel collection in the print ads, which will appear in national publications including People, TV Guide, US Weekly and InStyle. The apparel collection is available for purchase on www.FordCares.com and each piece features important symbols signifying the message of hope, strength and unity in the commitment to the fight against breast cancer. Ford donates 100% of net proceeds to Susan G. Komen for the Cure 365 days a year.

Also, 90210 viewers will have the chance to win America's most fuel efficient mid-size sedan, the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid starting November 17th running through December 15th. During the four-week promotion period, a unique Warriors in Pink 90210 television spot will reveal a "Warriorized" keyword. Viewers can visit cwtv.com/warriorsinpink and/or use their mobile phone to enter the keyword for entry into the sweepstakes for the chance to win.

"As a 15-year partner of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, we know that awareness leads to early detection and early detection saves lives," said Fontaine. "Getting the word out to all ages is important because women of all ages need to sound the drum to begin the fight early in life."

A long-standing partner of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Ford has dedicated more than $100 million to the breast cancer cause and remains committed to innovative ways to drive breast cancer awareness. The company's commitment runs well beyond raising funds � as a national series sponsor of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Ford is present at all 121 races nationwide.
