That is why AutoNation, Inc. (NYSE: AN), America’s largest and most admired auto retailer, and its 21,000 associates in more than 300 locations coast-to-coast, united with customers, friends and charitable partners, for a single purpose: to drive away cancer. The company, which made the decision in 2013 to direct all its charitable actions towards the fight against cancer and launched the Drive Pink Initiative two years later collected more than $ 28 million for research and treatment of cancer.
In November, AutoNation partners with the V Foundation’s Dick Vitale Fund for Pediatric Cancer to support and raise funds for innovative pediatric cancer research. Vitale is a long-time board member of the V Foundation and a passionate advocate for pediatric cancer research. He is also a friend of AutoNation and has joined their associates to help deliver care bags to pediatric cancer patients at their annual DRVPNK Across America Day.
With the AutoNation Cash Register Challenge in November, customers can add donations to their credit or debit card transactions at all AutoNation dealerships, stores and collision centers. Donations of all types and sizes are gratefully accepted, and 100% of funds raised go directly to helping pediatric cancer patients and their families in many meaningful ways, as well as supporting scientific research to find a remedy.
“Imagine a world without cancer, where no one, and especially children, would have to endure the pain and suffering it causes,” said Marc Canon, Executive Vice President and Head of Customer Experience. “This is our shared vision at AutoNation, where we work year round with partners like the Dick Vitale Fund for Pediatric Cancer and the V Foundation on front lines of funding, research and treatment to transform our vision of a world without cancer in reality. . ”
Dick Vitale nods, “I’m proud and honored to have AutoNation join our team and help raise dollars for young people battling cancer. There is nothing more tragic than seeing a mom and a dad put a child to rest. Until my last breath, I will continue my mission to fund the research on pediatric cancer essential to find a cure. I’m just saying AutoNation is awesome! Please support the Cash Register Challenge and help us beat this disease.
