Hot Pink Chevy Camaro SS Does Laps of Life to Fight Breast Cancer

By Joel Arellano | August 29, 2012
October is nominally Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Chevrolet is starting the fight early this year against the disease at the Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend. Chevrolet Racing will be donating $200 for each caution lap made by its special pink 2012 Chevy Camaro SS (pictured). The funds will go to the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer initiative. States Don Johnson, vice president of Chevrolet Sales and Services, "At Chevy, we believe everyday heroes can accomplish extraordinary things, and it is in this spirit that we work to achieve a world without breast cancer." Last year, Chevy Racing raised nearly $13,000 to the American Cancer Society. Besides the lap, Chevrolet has invited 30 breast cancer survivors and guests to the track. There, they will tour the racetrack in Camaro SS pace cars with famed NASCAR drivers Jamie McMurray, Ron Hornaday, Jr., and Danica Patrick.
Notes Roshini George of the American Cancer Society, "Last year, contributions of more than $900,000 supported the American Cancer Society's mission to save lives by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures and by fighting back against this disease. As we approach National Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, we want thank the Chevrolet family for its support and remind everyone to take the steps that make a difference in our fight against breast cancer."
