Chevy donates $200 per lap for Pink Breast Cancer Camaro Pace Car

For a good cause!

Press Release:
DETROIT – Chevrolet Racing will renew the brand’s fight against breast cancer this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway where every lap run under the caution flag will lead to a $200 contribution by Chevrolet to the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer initiative.


“For our 100th birthday in 2011, Chevrolet began its support of the American Cancer Society, and the generous response from our dealers, employees and customers told us we needed to help the Society fight for more birthdays,” said Don Johnson, vice president of Chevrolet Sales and Service. “At Chevy, we believe everyday heroes can accomplish extraordinary things, and it is in this spirit that we work to achieve a world without breast cancer.”


On Friday, 30 breast cancer survivors and their guests will spend the day at Atlanta Motor Speedway and participate in Chevrolet Camaro SS pace car rides around the historic track with Team Chevy NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Jamie McMurray and four-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion Ron Hornaday Jr. NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Danica Patrick also will visit with survivors for photos and autographs.


On Sunday, Chevy will donate $200 for every caution lap run during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series AdvoCare 500, paced by the pink Camaro SS featuring the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer logo. In 2011, 64 caution laps at Atlanta generated $12,800 for the American Cancer Society.


October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In September, Chevrolet will announce additional brand, dealer, employee and consumer activities in support of the American Cancer Society and Making Strikes Against Breast Cancer.


“Last year, contributions of more than $900,000 supported the American Cancer Society's mission to save lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures and by fighting back against this disease,” said Roshini George, national vice president of health promotions for the American Cancer Society. "As we approach National Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, we want thank the Chevrolet family for its support and remind everyone to take the steps that make a difference in our fight against breast cancer.”


Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is now one of the world's largest car brands, doing business in more than 140 countries and selling more than four million cars and trucks a year. Chevrolet provides customers with fuel-efficient vehicles that feature spirited performance, expressive design, and high quality.

Breast Cancer Camaro Pace Car

Not sure if this is a repost, but seen some pictures of two Camaro Pace Cars for Breast Cancer.



If you look closer at the "CAMARO" letters on the side, you can see the original car is white and they couldn't even take the time to remove "CAMARO" and put the skin behind it.

They also didn't take the time to see that the funds actually go specifically towards breast cancer research.

Man, I actually like that in pink, and the cause hits close to home. Now, would my wife allow her Synergy to be wrapped in pink? I'm thinking so.

Pretty cool, I'd imagine there are a number of ladies out there who would actually want a pink Camaro like that.

My Aunt is doing ok, is alert of where she is at.

Yes, support The Jimmy Fund at Dana Farber http://www.charitynavigator.org/inde...ary&orgid=3597 or several other hospitals that will do better with your funds than the ACS, who are incredibly inefficient:

http://www.charitynavigator.org/inde...ary&orgid=6495

You can go here and pull down to breast cancer:

https://www.kintera.org/site/c.kfINK...3F1B95693CC673

You could work your way down this list:

http://www.charitynavigator.org/inde...lts&sortby=rtg

Glad to hear you are a survivor, as is my son (September is childhood cancer awareness month, which sadly gets clobbered by the yearly pink wash pushed by these inefficient organizations, who don't pass on anywhere near the amount you may think they do).
