SEVEN FLAGS AND KOMEN FOUNDATION
7 Flags Car Wash and the Susan G. Komen foundation teamed up again for the month of October to help raise awareness about checking for breast cancer as well as to raise money to find a cure. The Susan G. Komen foundation donated pink neck gaiters, and literature about how to prevent breast cancer. The 7 Flags team promoted awareness by having all staff wear pink shirts, bracelets and breast cancer buttons.
7 Flags Car Wash donated $1 for every full-service car wash and $1 for every Fast Pass sold for the month of October and also accepted donations from their loyal customers. 7 Flags Car Wash was able to raise $6,247 to donate to the Susan G. Komen foundation to help find a cure for this month. 7 Flags has raised $51,849 over the past 7 years and is looking forward to continuing its partnership with the Susan G. Komen foundation.
President of 7 Flags Jason Anthony said: “This is a special event for the 7 Flags family. It is amazing to see the employees get behind such an incredible cause. We hope this partnership can continue for the foreseeable future.”
Breast cancer has affected us all in one form or another. Whether it’s a family member, coworker, friend, or even yourself personally, it has touched all of our lives. One out of every eight women is diagnosed with breast cancer, early detection is the key to survival. With the help from fundraisers, volunteers, sponsors, small businesses, scientists and physicians we can end breast cancer forever.
