The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a noncompetitive, inspirational event that raises awareness and funds to make strides to end breast cancer by finding cures and supporting programs and services for all people facing the disease. Funds raised through Making Strides will help the American Cancer Society save lives and create more birthdays by helping people stay well by taking steps to reduce breast cancer risk or find it early; helping people get well by providing information and support during and after a breast cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking breast cancer research; and by fighting back by encouraging lawmakers to pass laws to defeat breast cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight.

This year, on October 23rd, 2011, at 10:00am at Cooper River Park, Bob Maguire Chevrolet and Burlington/Camden county residents took a step in the right direction toward finding a cure for breast cancer and helping women celebrate more birthdays.

Chevy & Cell Phones for Soldiers

It is difficult to not find Chevy to be synonymous with the US Military. For decades, Chevrolet has dedicated enormous amounts of money and time to promoting the United State’s military and its services. Recently, Chevy has paired up with an organization called Cell Phones for Soldiers, a charity that recycles cell phones and uses that money to provide soldiers with pre-paid minutes and refurbished cell phones.

According to the Cell Phones for Soldiers website, “Chevrolet is launching a year-long campaign, with the goal of raising $1 million to support Cell Phones for Soldiers. To reach that goal, Chevrolet is calling on General Motors employees, NASCAR race fans, and Chevrolet dealers across the country to donate their unwanted, gently used cell phones to the cause.”

Over 77,000 GM employees have been enlisted by GM to make sure Chevy reaches its goal of $1 million. You can support this cause by going to the Cell Phones for Soldiers website and finding out where you can drop off your old cell phones and/or make a donation to this amazing cause!!
