Thomaston, CT, August 07, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Modern Motors of Thomaston, CT announces the arrival of the totally, completely, 100% all-new Mazda 6. At first glance Mazda fans will notice a sleeker, more refined car. On closer inspection consumers will see how Mazda has completely redesigned and rethought every aspect of the new Mazda6 which will be arriving at Mazda dealerships this August. On August 16th Modern Motors Mazda/Dodge will be commemorating the arrival of the new Mazda with a celebration in support of the Breast Cancer 3-day; a nation wide event to raise funds and awareness for the Susan G. Komen foundation.
In October, three Modern Motors employees will join thousands of other dedicated women and men at the Philadelphia Breast Cancer 3-Day benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure and National Philanthropic Trust. After months of training and fundraising, participants will walk 60 miles during three days to raise awareness and funds for critical research and community outreach programs.
The Philadelphia Breast Cancer 3-Day will start on Friday morning, October 17th and end with the Closing Ceremony on Sunday afternoon, October 19th. The walkers will cover about 20 miles a day, traveling at their own pace. The walkers will be supported by hundreds of volunteer crew members who will provide meals, liquid and snack stops, gear transport, hot showers, portable restrooms, safety on the streets and 24-hour medical services.
The actual journey starts months in advance when walkers start training and raising the $2,200 required fundraising minimum. In support of this journey and to celebrate the arrival of the new Mazda6 to the Mazda line up, Modern Motors announces the “Cruising for the Cure” event on August 16th, 2008 from 10:00am-4:00pm. Please join Modern Motors and be one of the first to check out the all new redesigned 2009 Mazda6 and support their employees as they raise funds and awareness for the breast cancer cause. The event will be broadcast by WZBG and food and drink will be provided. During the event, the first 100 customers to donate $25 to the 3-day cause will receive a coupon for a free oil change ($29.95 value). Modern Motors will also be accepting monetary donations throughout the month of August.
