PROSHRED® Seattle will be hosting its annual “Shred Cancer” event on Saturday June 8, 2019 from 9AM to 12PM in partnership with The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR). Local residents are invited to bring confidential documents to be securely shredded while raising funds for cancer research. The event will be held at PROSHRED® Seattle’s location - 830 Industry Drive, Building 20, Tukwila, WA 98188.

Individuals may bring boxes of paper, file folders, notepads, and envelopes to one of PROSHRED® Seattle’s location and the material will be shredded right in front of them. The event is free to attend and a suggested donation of $5 per box will go directly towards funding AICR’s cancer research and education programs.

“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,” said AICR Senior Vice President of Development Mary Beth Healy, “The funds raised by the PROSHRED® community makes a significant impact on the health of millions of Americans.”

Natalie LaBerge, president of PROSHRED® Seattle, commented, “We are excited about the opportunity to contribute and help AICR any way we can. Their work in cancer research and education has made a noticeable impact over the last 30 years. It is our hope that our collective efforts will raise awareness and funds for AICR. We can’t wait to see everyone on June 8 to Shred Cancer."

Started in 2014 on National Cancer Survivors’ Day, the PROSHRED® community has contributed over $176,000 to cancer research to date. This year, AICR and PROSHRED® Seattle have set a goal to raise $50,000 for research.
