Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 04, 2013
Jim Ellis Chevrolet raised funds for the American Cancer Society through a 5K walk in downtown Atlanta on October 26. The goal of the walk was to help "make strides" against breast cancer by contributing funds to its research.
The walk is part of Chevrolet and General Motor's initiative to exceed the nearly $1.1 million raised by the American Cancer Society in 2011 through breast cancer walks and other fundraising events. Last year, Chevrolet's contributions helped the American Cancer Society raise $1,079,633 in their "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" campaign, which is used to fund research as well as provide support for patients and education for the general public.
"Jim Ellis has a longstanding reputation for giving back to the community and supporting worthy causes," said Mark Frost, General Manager of Jim Ellis Chevrolet and Board Member for the North Georgia Chevrolet Dealers Advertising Association. "When the opportunity presented itself for the Chevy dealers, including Jim Ellis Chevrolet, to support this initiative, the support was unanimous and enthusiastic!"
