General Motors’ Chevy division makes strides against breast cancer
General Motors’ Chevy division is doing their part to help raise money, and awareness, for the fight against breast cancer.
On Friday, 30 breast cancer survivors and their guests will spend the day at Atlanta Motor Speedway and participate in pace car rides in a Chevy Camaro SS pace car, according to a press release from GM.
Then on Sunday, Chevrolet Racing will make a $200 contribution to the American Cancer Society for every lap run under the caution flag during this weekend’s race. Vice President of Chevrolet Sales and Service, Don Johnson, said in the press release that since their 100th birthday in 2011, Chevrolet began its support of the American Cancer society.
“We believe everyday heroes can accomplish extraordinary things,” Johnson said. “And it is in this spirit that we work to achieve a world without breast cancer.”
