EDISON, NJ (PRWEB) December 12, 2014
IFA Auto recently contributed to breast cancer research, support, and awareness by acting as a flagship sponsor of the Edison, New Jersey installment of the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, which was held on Oct. 26; in addition to acting as one of the sponsors of the annual event, IFA Auto directly participated with a team of 15 people, consisting of employees and their family members or friends. IFA Auto was able to raise $2,155 through donations as well as fundraising that took place prior to the walk. According to the American Cancer Society, this money supports various services to help people who are currently living with breast cancer and people who have not yet been diagnosed with the disease; these services include education and reminders about preventative tests, free services and emotional support programs for people who are fighting the disease, research into curing breast cancer as well as other cancers, and programs to make mammograms available to all women.
This is not the first time that IFA Auto has dedicated time and money to the fight against breast cancer; for more than a decade, the company has joined the Edison community in showing support for breast cancer research and for victims of the disease by participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. The long-term effects of this support may be significant; according to a 2013 American Cancer Society report, deaths from breast cancer have fallen 34 percent since 1990, and a better understanding of risk factors and treatments for the disease could lead to more effective prevention and detection. Still, the disease remains a sizable problem, with breast cancer representing nearly one-third of all cancer cases in women and claiming the lives of an estimated 39,620 women each year. Given the scale of the disease, IFA Auto remains committed to showing support through annual participation in the walk, along with other local events that give back to the community.
