For the eighth consecutive year, Chevy and General Motors are joining the fight against breast cancer by taking part in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer activities. As part of this support, Chevy is sponsoring several employee walks and event sponsorships.
Chevy has also launched the #IDriveFor social media campaign during the month of October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For every social media post that shows support for those affected by breast cancer and containing the hashtag #IDriveFor, Chevy will donate $5, up to $400,000. All these donations, as well as other donations made through Chevy’s support of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, will directly benefit breast cancer research, screenings, and education, via the American Cancer Society.
Breast cancer awareness is just one of the many causes that Chevy has championed. Its collection of causes falls under the umbrella Chevy Cares, which also supports military families, youth sports, and relief assistance during tragedies.
“We know that when we support causes that our employees, dealers and consumers are passionate about it helps bring communities together,” commented Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet Marketing. “We are proud to roll out Chevy Cares as a unifying effort that will allow us and our dealers to do even more in the communities where we live and work, including building on the success of our partnership with the American Cancer Society to raise even more awareness and financial support for breast cancer research.”
