Chevrolet will be renewing the brand’s fight against breast cancer this weekend at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Every lap run under the caution flag will lead to a $200 contribution by Chevrolet to the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer initiative.
?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,? stated Chevrolet VP of Sales and Service Don Johnson. ?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.?
Yesterday 30 breast cancer survivors and their guests spent the day at the Atlanta Motor Speedway and participate in Chevrolet Camaro SS pace car rides around the historic track with Team Chevy NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Jamie McMurray and four-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion Ron Hornaday Jr. NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Danica Patrick visited with survivors for photos and autographs as well.
Tomorrow Chevy will donate $200 for every caution lap run during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series AdvoCare 500 that is paced by the pink Camaro SS. The Camaro features the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer logo on it. In 2011, 64 caution laps in Atlanta generated around $12,800 for the American Cancer Society.
