Mohawk honored as Silver Stevie award winner in 2017 American Business Awards

mohawkCalhoun, Ga.—Mohawk was recently named the winner of a Silver Stevie Award in the Videos Category in the 15th Annual American Business Awards.

Selected for its motivational message, Mohawk’s Cushion the Fight video was shot during last year’s Susan G. Komen 3-Day. For the event, Mohawk donated more than 6,000 pieces of SmartCushion to help weary walkers and crew members rest in all seven participating cities. The video captured personal stories from participants and spread brand awareness for Mohawk—all while being authentic to the cause. The video was a tremendous hit on Komen and Mohawk social sites with one share receiving almost 80,000 views on Facebook.

“We are honored to win this prestigious award for a cause near and dear to our hearts,” said Laura Bartley, director of public relations and communication for Mohawk. “We are passionately committed to contributing to the lifesaving work in the fight against breast cancer, and we will Cushion the Fight again this year.”
