What is CreateAthon? It’s a 24 hour creative event to benefit charities most in need. It’s the story of over 100 ad agencies from around the globe that have participated in an annual marathon creative event, donating talent to help nonprofits raise funds and awareness. More than 1,300 non-profits have been served, receiving nearly $17 million of agency work.
EGC has participated in CreateAthon for seven years in a row as the only NY area agency. We work well into the night and regroup the next day to present compelling new ideas, digital campaigns, and marketing programs to our participating charities. We get to know these organizations and get to know each other as the entire agency comes together to bring a full service approach to our CreateAthon work.
