Pink Chevy Camaro Fights Cancer
Chevrolet will donate $200 for every caution lap the pink Camaro SS does during the race. If that sounds like too little to show they care, we’ll remind you that last year there were 64 caution laps at Atlanta, so the donation was $12,800. Besides this, 30 breast cancer survivers will get a chance to meet race drivers Danica Patrick, Jamie McMurray and Ron Hornaday Jr.
“For our 100th birthday in 2011, Chevrolet began its support of the American Cancer Society, and the generous response from our dealers, employees and customers told us we needed to help the Society fight for more birthdays,” said Don Johnson, vice president of Chevrolet Sales and Service. “At Chevy, we believe everyday heroes can accomplish extraordinary things, and it is in this spirit that we work to achieve a world without breast cancer.”
“Last year, contributions of more than $900,000 supported the American Cancer Society's mission to save lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures and by fighting back against this disease,” said Roshini George, national vice president of health promotions for the American Cancer Society. "As we approach National Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, we want thank the Chevrolet family for its support and remind everyone to take the steps that make a difference in our fight against breast cancer.”
