April 12, 2016 // Franchising.com // TROY, MI - Ziebart International Corporation, the global leader in detailing, films and protection services announces a national partnership with Journey 4 A Cure (J4AC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding ways to fund childhood cancer research, increase awareness about the realities of childhood cancer, and enhance the lives of children battling cancer. As a leading sponsor, the company will work with their U.S. franchised and company-owned locations, as well as the headquarters employees, to promote the nonprofit’s mission of increasing funding for childhood cancer research and enhancing the lives of children and their families currently battling cancer.
“Journey 4 A Cure is so very excited about the opportunity to partner with Ziebart International Corporation. Childhood cancer is the #1 disease related killer of children in the U.S. The incidence of childhood cancer is on the rise, 1 in 285 children will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 19. Despite compelling facts, childhood cancer research is severely and consistently underfunded. Our partnership with Ziebart International Corporation will support the Journey 4 A Cure mission and enhance our efforts to fund research, raise awareness about the realities of childhood cancer and help brave kids. We thank Ziebart International Corporation for this opportunity and their corporate values that foster giving back,” said Donna Carmical of Journey 4 A Cure.
“As we continue to reintroduce our brand to new franchise owners, new markets and new customers, we want to make sure they all understand the culture of our company. In all of our local communities, we look toward ensuring that all children live a healthy, quality, happy life. We are proud to be partnering with J4AC to help in the fight to end childhood cancer’” said Thomas E. Wolfe, President/ Chief Executive Officer, Ziebart International Corporation.
Ziebart will support their partnership through in-store donations at point-of-sale, ongoing awareness campaigns via their website and social media to promote online giving and a variety of events during Childhood Cancer Awareness month in September. “As the largest organized company of detailing, films and protection products, we are incredibly honored to share our stage with J4AC. Through in-store donations and online giving support, we look to help grow the awareness of this organization, that has positioned itself to help change the lives of many,” says Larisa Walega, Director of Marketing, Ziebart International Corporation.
