Healdsburg, California (PRWEB) September 11, 2011
The sales professionals at McConnell Chevrolet, the premiere Chevy dealer in Healdsburg, California, are proud of what Chevrolet is doing to help fight breast cancer. They know the company has a long history of helping men and women across the nation - not only by providing them with great vehicles.
Currently, Chevy driver Jimmie Johnson (No. 48) is tied for the lead in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series points. Johnson is the defending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion and winner of five consecutive championships.
Chevrolet plans to make a $200 donation to the American Cancer Society for each caution lap that a specially themed pink Camaro SS pace car runs in upcoming NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Richmond International Raceway. The Richmond race is 7:30 p.m. Sept. 10, 2011 and will be televised on ABC network.
Chevrolet's commitment to fighting breast cancer doesn't stop on the track. In their centennial year, the company is partnering with the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer initiative leading up to October, which is national Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Chevy’s Nov. 3 birthday. Other Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events will be announced later.
“For 100 years, Chevy has been helping people along the journey of life in countless ways,” said Alan Batey, Chevrolet vice president, Sales and Service.
“But as we all know, sometimes life’s journeys take detours or end too early. Together with our race fans, Chevrolet wants to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer, more birthdays and longer journeys.”
Chevrolet was founded in Detroit in 1911 and has been celebrating its centennial as a global automotive leader with annual sales of about 4.25 million vehicles in more than 120 countries around the world. Chevrolet provides consumers with fuel-efficient, safe and reliable vehicles that deliver high quality, expressive design, spirited performance and value.
