We are proud to announce we will be participating in the 2021 Brakes for Breasts Campaign from October 1 to October 31
Last year was our first time participating, and thanks to your generous patronage then, we were able to raise over $1,000 for the good cause.
This year, our team has set a goal of $2,000.
Brakes for Breasts is a nationwide, month-long campaign during October each year
How does it work?
As part of the fundraiser, participating auto repair facilities will give awayFREE (quality) brake pads or shoes. The customer simply pays the labor and any other ancillary parts necessary to complete the brake job, and the shops then donate 10% of the brake job directly to Dr. Vincent Tuohy & the Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine Research Fund.
This Brakes For Breasts fundraiser is different from any other breast cancer fundraising campaigns:
- Dr. Tuohy at the Cleveland Clinic has actually created a vaccine that has proved effective in laboratory animals in actually preventing breast cancer. Think about Polio, eradicated because of a vaccine, a distant memory for most generations. This is the same principle!
- Dr. Tuohy and his team are rounding the corner and are hoping to start Phase 1 trials in mid 2021.
- 100% of the proceeds from the ‘Brakes for Breasts’ fundraiser goes directly to the Cleveland Clinic for research on the Breast Cancer Vaccine.
- These are just “mom & pop” shops across the country, independent business owners that have joined hands for a great cause.
