Hendrick Dealerships Turn Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness in October

November 1st, 2018 by

There’s nothing that unites Hendrick teammates more than coming together to support a good cause. October was a colorful example of this, as dealerships turned pink for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. With 131 franchises and 10,000 employees across the country, Hendrick used its visibility to raise awareness of the disease, the importance of early detection, and ways people can join the fight against cancer.

“Many of our employees have been touched by the disease, so they all jump on the opportunity to do something to help,” said Jennifer Gomez, Honda of Concord Guest Services Manager.

And help they did! Employees found creative and inspiring ways to not only bring attention to the issue, but also provide tangible resources for their communities. Many dealerships organized fundraisers for cancer research and local charities that support patients, and used their locations to host mobile mammogram services.
