We’re officially in October, which means it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month! This is a time that’s especially important to Lester Glenn and we do everything we can to show our support for our community. From local awareness walks to adorning our showrooms in pink, we try to get involved in any way we can. Not only does it allow us an opportunity to help out a wonderful cause, it also brings the Lester Glenn family even closer.
This year is no different! We started the month strong with our social media campaigns, which will help raise awareness and funds in support of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Launched on October 1st, we will be donating $5 for EVERY new “like” and “follow” we get on Facebook and Instagram. At the end of the month, we’ll tally our results and put the check in the mail. On top of that, our marketing department designed specialty Lester Glenn Breast Cancer Awareness t-shirts, which are available to all of our staff members for a $10 donation. All proceeds from the t-shirts will also go towards Making Strides. To top it all off, we’ll be representing Lester Glenn in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer annual Walk on October 16th in Point Pleasant, New Jersey. Make sure to look for our decked out Chevrolet Silverado! It’s going to be an exciting month!
This year marks the 22nd year of the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. Every year, survivors, patients and caregivers alike come together to celebrate the strength and hope of all of those who have endured the battle of breast cancer. All of the money raised by participants goes toward breast cancer research, education and critical patient services. The American Cancer Society has been helping those affected by cancer for years and 500 lives are saved every day because of donations. None of these life-saving efforts would be possible without the help and support of the community.
October is going to be an absolutely awesome month and we are so excited to see what the next few weeks bring! Let’s get our donation numbers as high as they can go – visit our website and social media pages for all of the details about how you can get involved with this wonderful cause.
