When thinking about October, the first thought in many people’s mind is Octoberfest, Autumn and falling leaves. But for those affected by breast cancer, October means PINK! The pink ribbon is a symbol of the breast cancer movement and is known throughout the world.
Again in 2017, MILAN supported the local charity of “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” sponsored by the American Cancer Society. MILAN employees and their families participated in the noncompetitive walk on October 21st that brought people together who want to make a difference for those who have been touched by breast cancer. It was a great time of unity and fun.
“This is our second year of involvement with this event and it is so rewarding to contribute to such an area that impacts over 250,000 women just in 2017. We care about our employees and supporting this event is not only fun but honors the women of MILAN.” — Amy Cowen, EVP Supply Chain
The event raises money to fund research and help support people reduce their breast cancer risk. This year the MILAN team contributed to the charity to help those impacted by cancer and to honor the women of Milan. In addition, MILAN’s Facebook page spotlighted the MILAN female drivers throughout the month of October.
