"Over the last 30 years, AICR's work has led to increased awareness between diet, exercise, and the prevention of many cancers. It is our hope that our collective efforts across the PROSHRED® system will raise awareness and money for the work AICR conducts."

PROSHRED® Security (PROSHRED®) will be celebrating the ninth anniversary of their annual nationwide “Shred Cancer” Event. The first of the events will take place on Saturday, June 4, 2022, and will continue through to the end of August 2022 in partnership with The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR). Community members are invited to bring their personal information to be securely shredded while raising funds for cancer research.

The event will be held in many major metropolitan PROSHRED® markets throughout the country over the next three months. Event times will vary by location. To view event locations and timings, visit https://www.proshred.com/shred-events/

Individuals may bring boxes of documents or multi-media to one of PROSHRED®’s on-site shredding trucks to dispose of unwanted personal information safely and securely. The event is free to attend, however we encourage a donation of $10 per box that will go directly towards funding AICR’s cancer research and education programs. Several locations will host additional events and raffles.

“Generous support from millions of individual Americans—and not government or industry grants—have allowed AICR to fund emerging research and to continue our programs for educating the public about what practical steps we all can take every day to live in a world with less cancer. The funds raised by the PROSHRED® community makes a significant impact on the health of millions of Americans.” – American Institute for Cancer Research

Jeffrey Hasham, Chief Executive Officer of PROSHRED®, commented, "We at PROSHRED® consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to contribute to AICR's critical cancer research. The work of AICR has resulted in a greater understanding of the relationship between nutrition, exercise, and the prevention of numerous cancers over the last 30 years. We hope that by working together, we can increase awareness and proceeds for AICR's dedicated work. We hope to see a great turn-out at our Nationwide Shred Event on Saturday, June 4, 2022; together, we can Shred Cancer."
