Did you know there are 2.5 million breast cancer survivors who celebrated another birthday last year because of breast cancer awareness events and donations?
October marks National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and here at General Motors, the Chevrolet family has partnered with the American Cancer Society’s (ACS) campaign, “Making Strides against Breast Cancer” to help raise funds to end breast cancer. Across the country, Chevrolet, General Motors and local dealership employees will put on their pink and walk to help raise funds to fight this disease. Moreover, Chevrolet worked with Chevrolet dealers to donate to ACS every time a test drive was given at their dealerships on October 6, 2012. Through the month of October, customers of Chevy service departments who purchase select services can donate the rebate they would otherwise receive directly to the ACS.
The American Cancer Society is an organization dedicated to help breast cancer victims today and find a cure for tomorrow. Through their partnership with this venerable organization, Chevrolet employees will participate in more than 40 walks throughout the Midwest. The first weekend in October already saw over $130,000 donated by Chevrolet for test drives given at dealerships nationally.
We are inviting YOU to get involved and help precipitate an end to this disease. You can go to your local Chevy dealership for service, you can make a donation to ACS, or you can join us locally at one of two walks our staff will be at. Those walks are:
October 14, 2012 at Chicago Premium Outlets in North Aurora, IL and look for the “Bowtie Walkers” team.
October 21, 2012 at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, IL and look for the “Horsepower for Hope” team.
