Chevrolet Helps Out with the Fight Against Breast Cancer
Chevrolet is raising awareness of, and funds for the fight against breast cancer, at two upcoming NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races: the Atlanta Motor Speedway challenge, and the Richmond International Raceway event. With their car clad in a brilliant shade of pink with a lighter, pink-colored ribbon on the hood, Chevy plans to donate $200 per caution lap at each of the two races to the American Cancer Society.
Chevrolet's commitment to finding a cure for breast cancer doesn't start and stop on the track, either. They're also allying with the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer initiative in anticipation of October - National Breast Cancer Awareness Month - and the company's 100-year anniversary. Chevy is expected to announce additional Making Strides Against Breast Cancer initiatives, in the near future.
"For 100 years, Chevy has been helping people along the journey of life in countless ways," says Alan Batey, VP Sales & Service, Chevrolet. "But as we all know, sometimes life's journeys take detours or end too early. Together with our race fans, Chevrolet wants to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer, more birthdays, and longer journeys."1
