About 150 employees, friends and family affiliated with the Heartland Chevy Dealers in Lincoln and Omaha will join the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on Oct. 27 at Holmes Lake Park in Lincoln.
Last year the American Cancer Society raised $1.2 million in contributions through the Making Strides walks. The money helps fund research, wellness, breast cancer awareness education and support for breast cancer patients and their families.
“The Heartland Chevy Dealers are committed to helping find a cure for breast cancer,” said Gregg Young, President of the Heartland Chevy Dealer Group.
The Heartland Chevy Dealers are a group of 13 Chevy dealers serving the greater Omaha and Lincoln area, including stores in Bellevue, Council Bluffs, Louisville, Columbus, Blair, Fremont, Plattsmouth, Missouri Valley, Omaha, and Lincoln.
The dealers plan several activities in October in support of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer include test drive promotions, service rebate promotions, appearances of a pink Camaro at community events and fundraisers, Silverado shuttles and sponsored water stations at the walk and an opportunity to share your story on “Why I Walk” at the Chevrolet tent.
The dealers will make a $10 contribution to the American Cancer Society, up to $130,000, for each eligible test drive taken on select dates at participating dealerships.
