With fall rapidly approaching, we are once again asking for your support in the fight against breast cancer. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we at Health Mats would like to announce the return of our annual “Pink Ribbon Courage” fundraiser to raise awareness for the disease and to show our support for local breast cancer patients. This cause is very important to us, so we are getting the ball rolling in August, because it’s never too soon to spread the word about something that hits so close to home and can be so devastating for so many of us and our loved ones.
Limited quantities available
For the third consecutive year, we look to our network of customers and friends to donate $25 or more before Sept. 28. Existing customers already on our delivery routes can rent a pink ribbon courage mat for their commercial properties with a minimum donation of $25. Quantities of these mats are very limited, so reservations for them should be made by the week Sept. 10. Even if your company does not need a mat, you are still invited to donate any amount. Health Mats will be delivering these mats in late September and will pick them up in early November, for your convenience.
Who benefits from this fundraiser?
While insurance covers some of the costs breast cancer patients incur, neither co-payments for appointments nor deductibles fall under the coverage umbrella. This financial burden can add to the stress of treatment of and recovery from the disease. The costs of chemotherapy, radiation, nutrition or general check-ups add up quickly. Since this disease affects so many people in our lives, we feel it’s important to unite our efforts toward fighting back. With that in mind, Health Mats Company will give 100 percent of the proceeds of the Pink Ribbon program to area individuals chosen through our partnership with area oncology specialists. Qualifiers must be insured but in need of assistance. This money can go toward co-pays, deductibles, transportation to appointments, food and other daily needs.
We need your help to reach our goal for 2018
We are setting the goal of raising at least $2,500 to help fight back against this devastating disease.
