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.
New York, New York (PRWEB) May 23, 2016
In honor of National Cancer Survivors Day, PROSHRED New York and the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) will come together to provide the public with secure paper shredding at a recommended donation of $5 per box. With a limit of 5 boxes a person, 100% of all donations will go to the American Institute for Cancer Research to assist in their fight against cancer and their continued efforts in educating the public on preventative measures. Each donor will receive a goodie bag full of life-saving preventative materials including health tips and cooking recipes.
This year Shred Cancer has set a hefty fundraising goal to surpass last year’s impressive $50,000. Shred Cancer is a nationwide event and will receive support from all PROSHRED locations in over 26 different locations. After a successful event in 2015 the AICR spoke to their appreciation for their partnership with PROSHRED and their excitement for the 2016 Shred Cancer event: “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!”
National Cancer Survivors Day honors everyone involved in a survivor’s fight including medical professionals, family and friends. PROSHRED New York has worked in partnership with the AICR since 2014 and will continue the relationship to help educate their community on cancer awareness and life-saving prevention tips.
PROSHRED joined the fight against cancer after one of their own franchisee managers was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. “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.” The decision to partner with AICR was a simple one for PROSHRED, “…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.” PROSHRED is committed to making a difference and will continue to grow Shred Cancer into a nationwide event that provides hope in the fight against cancer.
