October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month; something that JBA Chevrolet is very passionate about. Over the years, we have supported various foundations that work to support and improve the lives of women fighting breast cancer, as well as their families. This year, our JBA Chevrolet team raised funds for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and donated $25,000 the Aiello Breast Center at the University of Maryland Baltimore Washingston Medical Center.

American Cancer Society: Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the largest walk for breast cancer awareness in the United States. The foundation challenges passionate participants to walk and raise funds that will enable the American Cancer Society to fund innovative research, provide free information & support to any touched by breast cancer, and help individuals reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when the disease is most treatable.

We are proud to participate in Chevrolet’s initiative to raise funds for the American Cancer Society through their #IDriveFor campaign throughout October. Every timesmall_msabc_twitter the #IDriveFor hashtag was used on Instagram or Twitter, Chevrolet would donate $5 to the American Cancer Society in support of their Making Strides Against Breast Cancer fundraiser.
