Last year, the American Institute for Cancer Research and PROSHRED raised over $50,000 through their Shred Cancer event. Overall 26 communities nationwide participated in the day’s shredding services. After Shred Cancer 2015, the American Institute for Cancer Research said of their partnership with PROSHRED, “Thank you for all of the hard work put forth in planning the 2015 Shred Cancer events. We look forward to our 2016 events and our kick off in February!”

Since 2014, AICR and PROSHRED Charlotte have worked together to increase cancer prevention awareness and educate people on the healthy choices they can make to reduce their risk of cancer. The event also will honor cancer survivors, their friends and family, and medical professionals involved in treating and caring for cancer patients.

PROSHRED joined the fight against cancer after one of their own was diagnosed. "When one of our franchisee managers was stricken with an inoperable brain tumor and we saw the amazing fight he had to beat this disease, we knew that we had to find an organization just as committed as David was to fighting this disease. For us at PROSHRED we wanted an organization that had the same beliefs we had – education, prevention, and knowledge are the best ways to stop this disease, and AICR lives this every day, their research is aimed at education and prevention. We at PROSHRED know that we can help make a difference, and will do everything we can to help do that."
