Speed51.com, the “100% Short Track Racing” news, information and live coverage source, has gone pink once again for the month of October to promote awareness during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
To further the company’s commitment Speed51.com will again partner with the JEGS Foundation to help raise money for all cancer research.
“Every family has been affected by cancer in some way, shape or form,” said Bob Dillner, Executive Editor of Speed51.com. “This is more than just a color change to Speed51.com. Cancer awareness is near and dear to everyone on our Speed51.com staff. We want to use this month to remember those of those we have lost to this terrible disease, such as my father, as well as those who continue to fight and the organizations such as the JEGS Foundation who strive to put an end to all forms of cancer.
“Locally here in the Charlotte area, we have all been touched by young cancer warrior Elijah. To support him, other children battling cancer and adults as well, we’re bringing their fight to the forefront this month.”
For more on Elijah’s story, follow along on Twitter using the hashtag #PrayersforElijah.
JEGS is a strong supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness Month through the JEGS Foundation where their motto is, “Racing for Cancer Research.”
The Coughlin family’s personal experiences with cancer drove them to assist in building awareness of the many faces of cancer and help generate dollars through race earnings to advance cancer research.
The JEGS Racing for Cancer Research ribbon on all cars and uniforms was designed to help create awareness. The ribbon may be a simple symbol, but it displays a meaningful sentiment. To order your JEGS Foundation Racing for Cancer Ribbon pin, decal or patch, visit JEGS.com and find it under the JEGS Foundation section. 100% of the proceeds of the sales go to the JEGS Foundation Racing for Cancer Research.
JEGS also has special pink apparel on JEGS.com where proceeds of each sale go to the JEGS Foundation.
The JEGS Foundation “Racing for Cancer Research” helps advance cancer research and build awareness. The motto “Racing for Cancer Research” was coined because of the donations generated by race and corporate earnings. The Coughlin family features the JEGS Racing for Cancer Research ribbon on all race cars and uniforms to raise cancer awareness. The ribbon may be a simple symbol, but it displays a meaningful sentiment.
The JEGS Foundation “Racing for Cancer Research” is honored to be affiliated with one of only 39 nationally-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, The Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute at The Ohio State University in Columbus.
The Board of Directors at the Ohio State University Foundation established the “Jeg Coughlin Chair in Cancer Research” after receiving a gift in perpetuity from the JEGS Foundation. The 1.5 million dollar funding for cancer research provides a chair position to be filled by a nationally eminent scholar whose research has been applied to cancer research and childhood cancer research.
Speed51.com encourages everyone to get the proper screening needed to help with early detection of cancer along with promoting a healthy lifestyle as part of its prevention. They also encourage donations to your local cancer research and education foundations across the country.
If you would like to make a gift to support with The JEGS Foundation in the race against cancer, there are easy ways to give.
