Breast Cancer Research at Karmanos Cancer Institute supported by Martinrea Hot Stampings
Monday, December 02, 2013
Martinrea Hot Stampings in Detroit has wrapped up their month-long breast cancer awareness and fundraising campaign. The promotion was held from the middle of October until the middle of November. Funds raised were donated to breast cancer research programs at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute.
Employees at Martinrea, from the administrative staff to the assembly plant workers, could make a donation and write their name on a pink ribbon to be posted throughout the building. Each employee also received a motivational word to stick on their employee badge, such as “HOPE,” “STRETNGTH” AND “COURAGE.”
By the time the campaign was over, the plant was totally “pinked-out,” with pink ribbons covering all of the walls and even the doors! Martinrea raised more than $1,600 for breast cancer research!
Karmanos is extremely grateful for the dedication and support of Martinrea and its generous employees!
