Speedy Glass boosts CCS coffers
Breast cancer is the most diagnosed cancer among Canadian women. To support women living with the disease, Speedy Glass partnered with the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) through the Drive Pink Campaign during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Through this campaign, Speedy Glass donated $2 from every pair of wipers sold. Trico, Speedy Glass’ supplier matched the donation. Funds raised through Drive Pink will help local women with breast cancer live their lives more fully through ground-breaking research and services that provide information and help women and their families cope with the disease.
At the end of this campaign, Speedy Glass’ stores across the province presented the Canadian Cancer Society with a cheque for $8,000.
“At CCS, we know that working together is the only way we can achieve all that we do,” says Irina Novak-Calki, Account Executive, Corporate Partnerships, Canadian Cancer Society. “It’s thanks to funds raised through the Drive Pink campaign by corporate partners like Belron Canada that we know more than ever before about how to prevent, diagnose, treat and live with and beyond breast cancer and help people with breast cancer live their lives more fully.”
“We were very proud to participate in the Drive Pink Campaign with the Canadian Cancer Society. We engaged all our employees across British Columbia in a very successful sales campaign, contributing to such a relevant cause,’’ said Fernando Pierri, Director of Operations for Belron. ‘’we would like to thank Trico, our wiper supplier, for participating with us.“
The participating Speedy Glass franchise was Cranbrook’s 404 Slater Road NW locale.
