When a strong company supports a great cause it’s a WIN WIN for everyone!
The Neighborhood Ford Store (a group of 82 Ford dealers in western Pennsylvania, southeastern Ohio and the panhandles of West Virginia and Maryland) is a longtime sponsor of the Susan G. Komen Pittsburgh Race for the Cure. 2012 marks the 18th year of support for Susan G. Komen by Ford and its dealers. During that time, Ford has dedicated more than $115 million to the breast cancer cause.
The 20th Anniversary Susan G. Komen Pittsburgh Race for the Cure will take place on Mother’s Day morning, Sunday, May 13, 2012, at Schenley Park’s Flagstaff Hill. The event includes a 5K chip-timed run, a 5K walk/run, and a 1-mile fun walk.
The Neighborhood Ford Store and Pittsburgh Frugal Mom would like to give two Pittsburgh Frugal Mom readers the opportunity to take part in this wonderful and uplifting event by providing complimentary registration (which includes a race T-shirt upon receipt of registration) to the 2012 Pittsburgh Race for the Cure, along with an official pink bandana, a $40 value.—Enter at the end of this blog post.
Ford is the official truck of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and at last year’s Breast Cancer Awareness game, the Neighborhood Ford Store produced and gave away tens of thousands of branded pink Terrible Towels to wave at the game.
While at the race, we encourage participants to visit the Ford area to pick up a free Ford Warriors in Pink bandana and stop by the Neighborhood Ford Store’s “Patchwork Station” booth to decorate a fabric square to be included as part of this year’s “Warrior Quilts”.
The quilts are made from thousands of individually decorated squares from community members and groups, and sewn together by volunteer quilters. They are donated to breast cancer centers and hospitals throughout the region to promote awareness of the disease, to provide inspiration and comfort to those undergoing treatment, and to assist in finding a cure.
