Afterglow’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign
For the month of October, Afterglow is going pink in support of Breast Cancer awareness month.
Over nine thousand Ontario women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year and two thousand women will die from it.
Afterglow is a Waterloo Region company that offers a broad selection of heating, cooling, air quality products and services. For the month of October the skilled and well trained Afterglow technicians will be wearing pink hardhats and ribbons, and the company will make a donation to the Breast Cancer Awareness fund at the Canadian Cancer Society, Waterloo Region branch.
“Cancer has impacted my family and many of the Afterglow employees in very personal ways.” Says Stephen McDonald, Afterglow’s General Manager. “We wanted to raise money but do it in a visual way to support all the women and their families that are going through this.”
If you call Afterglow for a fall furnace tune-up, or any service during the month of October, Afterglow will happily donate $5 to the Breast Cancer Program at the Canadian Cancer Society, Waterloo Region Branch
“Money raised locally will go towards educating women, spreading awareness, prevention presentations of breast cancer and breast cancer research.” Says Angie Melchin from the Canadian Cancer Society. “Our Cancer Information Services program has taken more than 2,500 calls from women helping them with their breast cancer diagnoses.”
Afterglow is looking forward to raising thousands of dollars this month for Breast Cancer Research. For more about Afterglow www.afterglow.ca
