CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Allied Van Lines, one of the nation’s leading moving companies, is proud to announce its new partnership with Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading breast cancer organization. Allied will support Susan G. Komen’s efforts to save lives from breast cancer through community outreach and fundraising. It is the first moving company to have a nationwide partnership with the leader in breast cancer research, advocacy and patient support.
Every two minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S., and one in eight women will be diagnosed at some point in her lifetime. That means nearly everyone knows someone who has been touched by the disease that will be diagnosed in nearly 250,000 men and women in the U.S. this year.
Allied Van Lines recognizes this important health issue and is looking forward to helping engage the communities it serves with important information about breast cancer and help fund Komen’s breakthrough research, advocacy and patient care services to support those facing the disease today.
“Allied is deeply committed to Susan G. Komen’s mission to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer. We are proud to partner with Susan G. Komen to help support their efforts,” said Lesli Bertoli, Vice President and General Manager of Allied Van Lines. “Our main goal is to continue creating positive experiences for our moving customers and to make an impact in Allied’s national and local communities to truly understand the significance of the Susan G. Komen vision.”
“We are grateful for the support of Allied Van Lines and their customers who help to make our support of the breast cancer community possible,” said Sarah Rosales, Komen’s VP, Corporate Partnerships. “As a trusted health care partner for breast cancer patients, survivors and their support systems across the country, together we will invest in a better future while ensuring people can access needed care, regardless of where they live or the financial resources they have.”
