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.

This year’s third-annual Shred Cancer event is aiming to raise $75,000 for the AICR across all 26 PROSHRED locations. In addition to fundraising, the event is meant to increase awareness and education of the healthy lifestyle choices individuals can make to help prevent cancer. All free shredding participants will receive a goodie bag with healthy recipes and lifestyle prevention tips. Last year’s event surpassed its $50,000 goal through the donations given for PROSHRED’s free shredding services.

PROSHRED’s involvement in National Cancer Survivors Day – a day of community outreach set aside to celebrate survivors, inspire those fighting cancer, and support the family and friends of cancer patients – is inspired by David Wright, a PROSHRED franchisee who has been living with and battling an inoperable brain tumor for several years. “It is in his honor that our PROSHRED franchisees and locations are gathering together to host this event,” said PROSHRED CEO Jeffrey Hasham.
