Given that the Grout Medic’s customer base is made up primarily of women, the company decided it wanted to support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which takes place each October. Nearly everyone knows someone—family, friends, or coworkers—who has been touched by breast cancer, and the team at the Grout Medic is no exception.
This year’s partnership with the BCRF was a huge success. Thank you to all of our franchisees that participated. $5 dollars of every job booked in October by The Grout Medic went towards breast cancer research. We are honored to participate in this event and look forward to increasing our fundraising goals yearly.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) advances the world’s most promising research to eradicate breast cancer in our lifetime. Founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, BCRF has raised more than $500 million to fuel discoveries in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, survivorship and metastasis. This year, we invested $45 million in the work of more than 200 researchers at leading medical institutions across six continents. By spending 91 cents of every dollar on research and public awareness, BCRF remains one of the nation’s most fiscally responsible charities. We are the only breast cancer organization with an “A+” from CharityWatch, and have been awarded a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator 12 times since 2002.For more information about BCRF, visit www.bcrfcure.org.
