Speed51.com, the “100% Short Track Racing” news, information and live coverage source, has gone pink in October for a good cause in promoting Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  But instead of just focusing on Breast Cancer, Speed51.com will again partner with the JEGS Foundation to help raise money for all cancer research.

 

Cancer is a disease that has personally affected each person, their family, friends, co-workers and more.

 

“Cancer is something that has affected all of our families,” Bob Dillner, Owner of Speed51.com said.  “My dad, who was a former race car driver, died of cancer last year.  We hope to raise awareness for all cancer research, including that for Breast Cancer, by having Speed51.com powered by JEGS go pink for the month of October.  We also invite race fans to see the great things the JEGS Foundation is doing for cancer research.”

 

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.
