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.

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.

ATLANTA, Oct. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Fashion retailer, Buckle, is again sponsoring Denim Days to support the American Cancer Society (ACS).

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.

Dedicate a Tribute for American Cancer Society’s Tributes at Twilight: A Visual Driving Experience

As part of the Browns’ Crucial Catch initiative, join us for this year’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer: Tributes at Twilight, a visual driving experience in partnership with the American Cancer Society.

Cancer doesn’t stop, so neither do we. Although we are living in a COVID world, it’s still important that we continue the fight against cancer every day. The impact of the pandemic will reduce the ability to fund cancer research by 50% in 2020 – the Society’s lowest investment this century if current trends continue. That is why on Saturday, October 17th from 6:30 – 8:00p.m. at FirstEnergy stadium, the Browns and the American Cancer Society will be hosting a drive-thru Tribute Garden where we will be showcasing Luminaria bags while staying socially distant and safe in cars. The experience will begin at the University Hospital Gate and feature a large, light-up pink chair.

The Tribute Garden will

Valvoline Instant Oil Change Partners With American Cancer Society To Raise Money In The Fight Against Cancer

NEWTON, Mass., Oct. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — During October, participating Valvoline Instant Oil Change SM (VIOC) locations will offer customers the opportunity to help raise much-needed dollars to support American Cancer Society (ACS) and its Road To Recovery program which helps transport cancer patients to potentially life-saving treatment appointments. For an even bigger impact, customers can download a coupon from ValvolineFightsCancer.com and for every coupon redeemed, VIOC will donate an additional five dollars to ACS.

“DON’T PUT IT OFF!” Recent reports show that due to the pandemic, 46% fewer patients were diagnosed with cancer.

In support of ACS, VIOC wants to remind everyone that just like maintaining fluids in their vehicle prevents major repairs, getting recommended cancer screenings does the same for their body.
