SAN FRANCISCO, July 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cheetah Mobile (NYSE: CMCM), the leading developer of mission-critical mobile utility applications, and Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF), the longest running cheetah conservation program in existence, today released a 30-second video PSA as part of their new joint awareness campaign, #SaveTheCheetah.
The spot makes its public debut at Indianapolis Speedway's Brickyard Race Weekend, a three-day event held July 24-26, 2015, that culminates with the running of NASCAR's Crown Royal 400 on Sunday afternoon. The Brickyard Race Weekend is known for being the second-highest attended sporting event in the world, drawing crowds totaling in the hundreds of thousands for three-days of racing and fan engagement activities. The #SaveTheCheetah PSA is airing on the Jumbo-tron screen in the fan zone throughout the weekend, where it will garner an estimated 1.3 million impressions.
Cheetah Mobile and CCF chose to debut the spot at the Indianapolis Speedway because cheetahs -- the fastest mammals on land -- are racing against extinction. With fewer than 10,000 remaining in the wild, the cheetah is Africa's most endangered big cat. The two organizations are encouraging NASCAR fans and animal lovers to show support for this beautiful species by interacting with the campaign through social media using the hashtag #SaveTheCheetah. The goal is to inspire people to become involved in the fight to save the cheetah, through sharing information and by donating to CCF's conservation programs.
Announcing their new campaign and corporate-nonprofit partnership on July 15, 2015, Cheetah Mobile and CCF recently joined together to focus greater attention on the plight of the cheetah. Cheetah Mobile and CCF launched their campaign with a video billboard in New York City's Times Square airing from the middle of July through the end of September and are planning to release print and digital creative elements next month.
