AutoNation – “The Yellow Party” –
This past Saturday Was An Evening to Benefit RACING FOR CANCER
AutoNation (NYSE: AN), America’s largest auto retailer, has partnered with IndyCar Series Champion Ryan Hunter-Reay to support his Racing for Cancer charity. AutoNation’s primary charitable focus over the next two years will be cancer awareness and prevention, and Ryan’s charity will serve as a key component of that program. Ryan founded the 501(c)(3) charitable organization following the 2009 passing of his mother due to colon cancer.
“All of us are touched by cancer in some way and we’re proud to join forces with Ryan in the race to help conquer this disease. We’re looking forward to committing our efforts and the efforts of our 21,000-strong team of associates to the fight,” said AutoNation Chairman and CEO Mike Jackson. “Through his professional outreach and personal involvement, Ryan has demonstrated an amazing commitment to fighting cancer and we hope that the contributions we’re able to make will bring us across the finish line that much faster in the battle to defeat cancer.”
“Racing for Cancer’s” mission is simply to help “beat cancer.” The organization seeks to unite motorsport fans, sponsors, teams and others in a coast to coast effort to help eradicate the disease. They concentrate their efforts in-particular on early detection and prevention along with an emphasis on supporting childhood cancer initiatives. Now with the support of AutoNation, Racing for Cancer will have 21,000 team mates in 15 states.
