Making Strides With Seiner Chevy Against Breast Cancer

October 30th, 2016

Each year during October, the color pink is donned by many, and hundreds – maybe thousands – of fundraisers, campaigns, and events take place to help raise awareness for breast cancer. This year, Jerry Seiner Chevrolet is doing their part to help combat breast cancer through raising awareness and fundraising. In cooperation with other Chevrolet dealers, Jerry Seiner Chevrolet’s employees are having “dress-down Fridays”, where each employee that participates donates five dollars to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer fund. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a walk that contributes to the fight against breast cancer, and also to increasing hope in the hearts of women around the world who have or may obtain the cancer.

Because of the American Cancer society, support, and donations, the death rates from breast cancer have dropped significantly over the last twenty years. Since 1989, women are thirty-four percent less likely to die from breast cancer. The Making Strides Walk is just one way to keep improving these rates. Last year, the Making Strides walks brought around 800,000 people together to raise a whopping sixty-eight million dollars.

If you ever wonder where donations like these go, here are a couple of answers. Because of fundraisers like Making Strides, more people in our community have the information and tools they need to stay well from breast cancer or find the disease early – because that’s when it’s easiest to treat. More people have a place to turn to for help at all hours of the day if they are facing breast cancer, whether you are a patient, or a relative or friend of a patient. More people can benefit from the progress that is being made toward finding breast cancer’s causes and cures, and more can get access to information that navigates them to lifesaving mammograms and treatment.

Any donation helps, so no matter how much you can donate, please consider giving what you can.
