Contributing to this cause is important to IFA Auto because breast cancer affects the lives of so many people.
Edison, NJ (PRWEB) September 25, 2014
IFA Auto Insurance will help raise money for breast cancer research and support programs this October by participating in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Edison, New Jersey, on Oct. 26. Besides organizing a team to participate in the walk, IFA Auto will be raising funds beforehand by selling baked goods, pretzels, and more. IFA Auto has participated in this annual event for more than a decade, and last year, the company was able to raise $5,000 and sign up a team of 25 walkers. The company hopes to see similar success during this year’s walk, which will be held at the Edison Convention & Expo Center on 97 Sunfield Ave., with registration starting at 7:30 a.m. and the walk beginning at 9 a.m. The company will provide team shirts to people who register to walk with the IFA Auto team before Sept. 26; the registration form can be accessed through the team’s online event page, which people can also visit to make supporting donations.
The proceeds from the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk provide women with easier access to mammograms, fund research into breast cancer and potential cures, and offer support and other resources to people who have been diagnosed with the disease. Contributing to this cause is important to IFA Auto because breast cancer affects the lives of so many people. According to the American Cancer Society, roughly 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer at some point in their lives; in 2014 alone, the ACS estimates that over 230,000 cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed, along with over 60,000 cases of non-invasive breast cancer, and the disease is projected to claim more than 40,000 lives by the end of the year. The ACS reminds people that any form of participation or support, including donations as small as one dollar, can help; anyone who is interested in learning more about this year’s walk can find additional information by visiting the official Making Strides Against Breast Cancer website.
