In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Sames Ford of Corpus Christi, Texas, is raising funds for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk of Corpus Christi. The walk, hosted by the American Cancer Society, raises both awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer. The walk will take place on Saturday, October 19, at 9:00 a.m. at Water Gardens, located at 1700 N. Chaparral St. in Corpus Christi. Walk registration begins at 7:30 a.m. Sames Ford has participated in this event for the past five years. The first year, the dealership raised about $300; the second around $700; and last year Sames Ford raised nearly $7,000. Each year Sames Ford sets their goal to beat the previous year’s amount and have set this year’s goal at $10,000.
As part of the fundraising, Sames Ford is offering unique t-shirts commemorating the walk, which are available to both employees and the public for just $15. You can also find donation cans located in various departments at Sames Ford for cash donations. Additionally, Sames Ford staff will be selling candy throughout the dealership departments to raise money. As Nevolena Moreno, business operations employee and fundraiser coordinator at Sames Ford explains, “Everybody has a lot of fun doing it, so we do it every year. I’ve always done walks and events like this one.
