2018 Brakes for Breasts Campaign
We're excited to announce Clovis Auto Shop will participate in national campaign Brakes for Breasts for a fourth consecutive year.
Throughout the month of October, we will join several other independent auto repair shops across the US to raise funds for a breast cancer vaccine as part of the Brakes for Breast fundraiser. We will be giving away FREE quality brake pads donated by our local campaign partner, Smith Auto Parts. Our customers will pay only the labor and any other parts necessary to complete the brake job. We will then donate 10% of the brake job directly to Dr. Vincent Tuohy and the Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine Research Fund.
- In 2017, Clovis Auto Shop along with 113 other auto repair shops in 34 states raised $114,389.20.
About Brakes for Breasts:
Dr. Vincent Tuohy and his team at the Cleveland Clinic have successfully tested a breast cancer prevention vaccine in his lab and are gearing up for the start of phase 1 trials!
- 100% of donations go directly to research to make the current vaccine bigger, better, and stronger!
- Additionally, this research is spearheading a vaccine for ovarian, prostate and other cancers.
- The Cleveland Clinic anticipates vaccinating the first woman by mid-2019.
Imagine a world free of breast cancer, and we all get to say we were a part of it! For our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, daughters and all of the women we love and cherish, we honor you in our efforts!
