American Cancer Society and Chevrolet Celebrate 10-Year Partnership in Fight Against Breast Cancer

While Making Strides events have gone virtual this year, Chevrolet will continue support the events at the national, regional and local level all month. Employees across the country are participating in local Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events by “walking where they are” and making donations.

On October 1, Chevrolet launched its monthlong #IDriveFor social media campaign, which encourages people to share whom they drive for using the hashtag. Chevrolet will contribute $5 for every social post (up to $220,000) on Twitter or Instagram using #IDriveFor.

Chevrolet is also showing its support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Making Strides by turning the towers of the Renaissance Center global headquarters in Detroit pink during October, displaying a pink fleet of vehicles and painting the sidewalks in front of the Renaissance Center pink.

“We are more grateful than ever for Chevrolet’s partnership, 10 years strong,” said Gary Reedy, chief executive officer of the American Cancer Society. “Cancer hasn’t stopped for COVID-19. Chevy’s continued commitment to Making Strides, ensures we can fund the future and continue the progress we have made in the fight against breast cancer through groundbreaking research, providing access to care and providing screenings for those who need it most.”

“Many things look different today than they did a year ago, but the commitment by ACS to continue the fight against breast cancer remains unwavering,” said Steve Majoros, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet Marketing. “Chevy is proud to continue our commitment to Making Strides with the rollout of the #IDriveFor campaign. We are excited to leverage technology to create a virtual community fueled by the shared mission of raising awareness of and financial support for breast cancer research.”

American Cancer Society’s 100+ Year Fight to Save Lives from Breast Cancer Gets Boost from Fashion Retailer, Buckle

ATLANTA, Oct. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Fashion retailer, Buckle, is again sponsoring Denim Days to support the American Cancer Society (ACS). Denim Days began in 1986, when employees at a private company got together to ask coworkers for donations to “go casual” for the cause. The idea spread, and now companies, schools, and other organizations nationwide have participated. In the weeks leading up to Denim Days, friends and coworkers are asked to donate $5 or more to wear jeans to work one day in October.

In support of the campaign, Buckle will donate $1 to ACS Denim Days for every pair of regular-priced jeans purchased in-store and online from participating brands from October 4 – 25, 2020. Buckle will also contribute 20% from the sale of every t-shirt with a “Unite To Fight” sticker and give their guests the opportunity to support ACS by “Rounding Up” their in-store purchase to the nearest dollar during the same timeframe.

“Buckle has always believed that good business begins with great people doing good things, and we know our October campaign to support the fight against breast cancer is a great way to come together with our teammates, guests, and our great partners like ACS to do something impactful,” shared Dennis Nelson, President and Chief Executive Officer at Buckle.

Buckle’s campaign will help the American Cancer Society provide much-needed resources and support  for the one in eight women who will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.

“We could not be more appreciative of Buckle’s support for Denim Days,” said Gary Reedy, Chief Executive Officer of the American Cancer Society. “Buckle is a great partner in our work to help save lives in the fight against breast cancer, and its team, leadership and guests continue to answer our calls for support.”

ACS is the number one trusted source of cancer information and provides 24/7 virtual and live response support via their cancer hotline; provides transportation and lodging assistance to those who must travel long distances to get care; and is the primary private nonprofit funder of cancer research, investing more than $4.9 billion over 75 years.

Securus Technologies Supports the American Cancer Society through the Company’s eCard Program during October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month | News

DALLAS, Oct. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Securus Technologies is proud to announce the company will be donating fifty percent of proceeds from the company’s “Fight Against Breast Cancer” suite of eCards to the American Cancer Society (ACS) to help in the fight against a disease that takes thousands of lives each year.  According to cancer.org, breast cancer death rates in the U.S. are higher than those for women than any other cancer, besides lung cancer.  Donating financial support to the ACS will help to fund and conduct cancer research, support patients and spread the word about prevention.

The cost to attach an eCard to an email is one Stamp, and the proceeds from all the Stamps used in the month of October for the “Fight Against Breast Cancer” eCard category will be donated to the ACS.  Incarcerated individuals along with their loved ones in almost 40 states can purchase and attach any of the 20 customer-crafted greeting cards celebrating hope for breast cancer survivors and all those touched by the disease. 

“Too many mothers, daughters, sisters and friends are battling this disease – it has to stop,” said Jade Trombetta, Senior Manager, Communications and Social Media for Securus Technologies.  “We have proudly supported this cause for years and thank all other organizations and individuals who prominently wear pink and support the fight against breast cancer during the month of October, and throughout the year.  Together we can beat this.”

“We envision a future where our daughters –our children –will no longer live with the threat of breast cancer,” said the National Leadership Team for the American Cancer Society. “Unfortunately, that future is at risk. The impact of COVID-19 will reduce our ability to fund cancer research by 50% in 2020 –our lowest investment this century if current trends continue. We can’t and won’t allow progress to be put on hold because of COVID-19. At risk are more and better treatments and discoveries that will improve and save lives.”

American Cancer Society Announces Drive-Thru Fundraiser At Jones Beach, Long Island’s Largest Breast Cancer Awareness Event Adjusts To Pandemic

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Thursday marks the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The usual fundraising events, like breast cancer walks, are going to be much different this year. In fact, as CBS2’s Dr. Max Gomez reports, one of Long Island’s biggest fundraisers has become a drive-thru event.

Breast cancer awareness is critical every year and every month, of course. But, many women have been putting off their mammograms, or even cancer treatments, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Cancer doesn’t wait. So, this year, awareness and action are even more important.

The American Cancer Society’s Making Strides of Long Island cancer walks, said to be the largest in the country, have been held annually in October at Jones Beach.

But, these kinds of mass gatherings, especially for cancer patients and survivors, are simply off limits during the pandemic.

RELATED STORY: Doctors Urge Women To Get Breast Screenings Now, Don’t Wait For Pandemic To End

Long Island elected officials, spokeswomen for the American Cancer Society and survivors gathered to make sure breast cancer awareness stays top of mind this month.

“I just want to thank the American Cancer Society for all the things that they’re doing, for having my back and my front in so many ways throughout my fight over the past 16 months,” said Adina Perullo, a breast cancer survivor.

The most interesting announcement: this year’s Making Strides fundraiser will be a drive-thru event.

The fully in-car, rolling pep rally at Jones Beach will be fully compliant with COVID-19 safety guidelines. But, you must make reservations online, ahead of time, for a timeslot on October 18 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
