This effort is more likely to impact a friend, family member or neighbor than anything we can do.
Grants Pass, Ore. (PRWEB) September 25, 2014
The month of October, National Breast Cancer Awareness month, Dutch Bros. Coffee will be selling “Be Aware” travel mugs and donating proceeds to OHSU’s Knight Cancer Institute.
Mugs cost $17 and include your Dutch Bros. drink of choice for free. For every mug sold, $5 will be donated, while supplies last.
“We are super stoked to support the work of the Knight Cancer Institute,” said Travis Boersma, Co-Founder of Dutch Bros. Coffee. “My family, like so many, has been impacted by breast cancer. We are ecstatic about the progress and work of the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute.”
Oregon Health & Science University revolutionized cancer treatment once and is poised to do it again by taking on the biggest unmet need in cancer treatment: finding smarter, foolproof ways to detect cancer early. OHSU’s Knight Cancer Institute has launched an unprecedented $1 billion effort to transform early detection and save countless lives.
The $1 billion Knight Cancer Challenge was launched in 2013 after Nike Co-founder Phil Knight and his wife, Penny, pledged $500 million for cancer research if OHSU raised an equal amount by February 2016. The $1 billion investment will allow the Knight Cancer Institute to hire 20 to 30 top scientists and their teams to collaborate on improving methods to identify cancer at its earliest and most curable stage, and to move the most promising new detection methods and treatments from the laboratory to clinical trials as quickly as possible.
