)-- In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Chevrolet is launching events nation-wide to help heighten awareness and raise funds to combat a disease that has touched so many lives. Don Ledford Automotive is proud to be a part of a company that cares so much about making a difference for the common good.

General Motors (GM) and Chevrolet dealers, employees, and customers are joining forces in the fight against breast cancer. The goal is to raise more than $1.1 million raised by the American Cancer Society in 2011 through Chevrolet’s support of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks and other events.
“The generosity of our employees, dealers and customers shows how everyday heroes can unite to make a difference in eradicating a disease impacting 1.5 million people,” said Don Johnson, vice president, Chevrolet Sales and Service. “For the second year, we are committed to support the American Cancer Society in continuing its fight for more birthdays.”
The walks and events will feature special editions of popular Chevrolet vehicles. “Pinked Out” versions of the Chevy Spark and Camaro SS will be on-hand at events to help raise additional funds. The attention drawn by the vehicles will help Chevrolet to beat last year’s mark of $1,079,633 in contributions, and make 2012 a record year in donations for The American Cancer Society.
“The American Cancer Society is thrilled to have the support of Chevrolet and General Motors nationwide to help us lead the fight against breast cancer,” said Jill Elder, vice president, American Cancer Society, Great Lakes Division. “One in every two women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to the American Cancer Society for support. The contributions of General Motors and Chevrolet help make it possible to do the most for people with breast cancer today and enable us to continue the great work we’re doing to find cures to end the disease tomorrow.”
