NKY Auto Shop Joins Nationwide Campaign to Fight Breast Cancer
During the month of October, Alexandria Tire Center in Alexandria and 134 other Independent auto repair shops across the United States are raising funds for a breast cancer vaccine as part of the "Brakes for Breasts" fundraiser.
As part of the fundraiser, the auto repair facilities are giving away free quality brake pads or shoes. The customer simply pays the labor and any other ancillary parts necessary to complete the brake job and the shops then donate 10% of the brake job directly to Dr. Vincent Tuohy & the Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine Research Fund. 100% of what each shop donates goes directly to research.
2015 marks the fifth year for the "Brakes For Breasts" fundraiser.
2011 - 5 shops in Ohio raised $10,000
2012 - 27 shops in 17 states raised $32,848
2013 - 66 independent auto repair shops in 27 states raised $66,499
2014 – 143 independent auto repair shops in 29 states raised $115,236.53
