People say that when you’re doing well, you should help those in need, and since breast cancer is one of the biggest problems facing women today, finding a solution should be a top priority. Chevrolet is helping the cause by donating $916,911.53 to the American Cancer Society, money raised through Chevrolet’s grassroots support for the society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks.
The Chevrolet Camaro Advocare 500 Pace Car is one of the models used to help raise this money. The Camaro SS peace car was wrapped in American Cancer Society and Making Strides branding for two NASCAR Sprint Cup races in September 2011. For each pace car lap completed under the yellow (caution) flag, Chevy donated $200 to the society, for a total of nearly $30,000.
"I am deeply touched by the generosity and kindness of our dealers, employees and customers," said Alan Batey, vice president, Chevrolet Sales and Service. ’The Chevrolet Centennial was about our 100th birthday, and this money will help the American Cancer Society continue to fight for birthdays threatened by breast cancer."
