Gabriel’s Automotive & Towing is excited to announce that we are in the midst of our yearly “Brakes for Breasts” campaign to help end breast cancer! During the month of October, we join with countless other independent providers of brake repair in Chino Hills, CA and across the country to raise funds for research into treating and curing breast cancer.
Breast cancer is a serious disease that has affected the lives of so many of our friends and loved ones. Chances are, you know someone who has fought against breast cancer, whether it’s someone close to your or an acquaintance. That’s why we are proud to stand up to show our support through giving, along with other auto repair shops. We couldn’t do this without our friends and customers, so we’re asking you to help us make a difference.
Here’s how it works: During October, auto repair shops across the United States work to raise money that goes to support the research being carried out through the Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine fund. More and more auto repair shops join the cause every year, offering free brake pads to their customers.
For every brake service that is performed at one of these participating auto shops, customers only pay for labor or additional parts for brake services—not the brake pads! Every single shop then donates 10% of their brake service earnings directly to the Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine fund.
Just how much can one repair shop do, you ask? The answer is a lot! Here are a few statistics to give you an idea:
- $10,000 raised by 5 independent auto repair shops in the state of Ohio in 2011
- $32,848.48 raised by 27 independent auto repair shops across 16 states in 2012
- $66,499.29 raised by 66 independent auto repair shops across 27 states in 2013
- $115,236.53 raised by 136 independent auto repair shops across 28 states in 2014
- $141,868.76 raised by 174 independent auto repair shops across 32 states in 2015
- $125,867.37 raised by 131 independent auto repair shops across 35 states in 2016—the most on record to date!
In total, independent auto repair shops just like ours have raised a grant total of over $492,000 in the last six years! Our fundraising efforts are not self-serving in any way: 100% of the money we earn is donated directly to breast cancer research.
We are also excited to tell you that Cleveland Clinic’s Dr. Vincent Tuohy and his team have tested a breast cancer prevention vaccine in the lab—with great success! In fact, they are preparing to start phase 1 trials right now. Help us fight breast cancer so our daughters and granddaughters will never have to fear for their health and safety due to this disease.
