KWP releases new campaign for SA research group

Adelaide boutique agency KWP has launched a follow-up campaign for the The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) Group, which counts 11 charities under its management.

The campaign features 30 second TVC’s titled ‘The Ring’ and ‘Impact’, which feature the return of ‘The Beast’, who comes up against a young patient and army of real life patients, researchers, staff and supporters, all sporting boxing gloves as they come to join the battle against the beast.

The campaign also has 15 second cutdowns, large format out-of-home, street furniture, a boxing ring activation in Glenelg, as well as a series of 6 second bumper videos and multiple digital display assets including homepage takeovers.

“It’s now more than ever that we need the community in our corner to take on the deadly enemies such as cancer, stroke and heart disease,” said THRF Group’s CEO Paul Flynn.

KWP CEO David O’Loughlin said: ”This new work builds on what we started with the first ‘Together. Fight.’ campaign. It focuses on the extraordinary, everyday people behind the fight and the impact being made.

“Sequels are often challenging, we wanted to make sure that the evolved message of this new campaign could be delivered with the same, or more impact, as the original work. With the support of a committed and progressive Client, I think we have managed to do just that,” O’Loughlin added.
