The Grout Medic announces fundraising drive in October for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
DALLAS/FORT WORTH, TEXAS—With a customer base that primarily consists of women, the Grout Medic family knew they wanted to do something in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. After a discussion of how franchisees could “give back” to their communities at the Grout Medic Annual Meeting last summer, the idea was introduced for a companywide fundraising campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Nearly everyone’s life has been in touched in one way or another by breast cancer, and everyone knows well the importance of research in finding a cure for this disease.
For every job participating Grout Medic franchises book in October, they will contribute $5 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF). BCRF remains one of the most fiscally responsible charities in the country, having earned 4 stars from Charity Navigator (out of four stars) for the eleventh time since 2002. Currently, $0.91 of every dollar spent by BCRF is directed toward breast cancer research and awareness programs.
“This is an important issue that impacts so many,” says a Grout Medic representative, Ron Bandyk, who has been a franchise owner for 17 years in Chicago. ”Almost everyone knows of a family member, friend, or coworker who has been touched by this disease. Over the past several years, efforts to raise awareness have been gaining steam and statistics show that survival rates are improving. These improvements are believed to be the result of earlier detection through screening and increased awareness, as well as improved treatment resulting from additional research. We hope to, in some small way, further this effort.”
This offer from the Grout Medic of Dallas/Fort Worth is good for the entire month of October.
