Tell Your Warrior Story
11Alive's Buddy Check Salutes the Komen Race for the Cure in Atlanta on May 11th and the Ford Warriors in Pink! The Susan G. Komen Atlanta Race for the Cure®, celebrated every spring on Mother's Day Weekend, serves as the premiere fundraiser for the Greater Atlanta Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Ford Motor Company has been active in the fight against breast cancer since 1993. In 2006 Ford intensified its efforts by introducing Warriors in Pink and the Ford Warriors in Pink line of wear and gear. 100% of the net proceeds from all wear and gear sales is dedicated to the cause with donations going to charities that offer a wide-range of support.
Ford Warriors in Pink goal is to keep the topic of breast cancer part of everyday conversation and encourage women and men to engage in self-exams. Greater awareness can lead to earlier diagnosis, which in turn, could save lives. www.fordcares.com
