RNR Tire Express Honors Breast Cancer Survivors in Annual Campaign
Neighborhood Tire & Custom Wheel Franchise Raises Funds, Hosts Surprise Giveaway for Breast Cancer Awareness
November 26, 2019 // Franchising.com // TAMPA - Last month, RNR Tire Express (RNR), the nation’s fastest-growing tire and custom wheel franchise, continued its tradition of celebrating strong and inspiring cancer fighters and survivors. As part of its annual breast cancer awareness initiative, RNR encouraged customers and members of the community to nominate breast cancer fighters for their fearlessness and help honor their unmatched feats of strength. Selected from thousands of entries, RNR Tire Express chose to honor four deserving women across the country for their incredible courage and determination to never give up.
RNR Corporate recognized one local Tampa resident and breast cancer fighter, Trisha at a surprise reveal event with her family and friends at her local store on Tuesday, November 19 where RNR presented her with the ultimate gifts – a complete set of new tires, a full spa day VIP Package, for both her and her friend that nominated her and $1,000 in cash for Trisha. Trisha, who was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer a week before her 32nd birthday, is known for giving back to others amid her own struggles. Trisha spends her holidays working to provide memorable Christmases for foster children. Last year, she single-handedly raised $5,000 through charitable outreach within her community without ever expecting anything in return. Now, RNR is recognizing her with a small act of kindness to recognize her giving nature throughout her fight.
“I remember when the doctor called me to tell me it was cancer, I knew from that moment on my life would never be the same,” Trisha said. “What I couldn’t have ever imagined was the support, love, and care that I would receive along the way from family, friends, my community and now RNR Tire Express.”
RNR Tire locations from across the country teamed up to honor breast cancer survivors for the 2nd year in a row. This year’s initiative kicked off in October, asking for participants to share the inspiring survivor stories of their loved ones for a chance to honor one courageous survivor or fighter with the nice surprise of honoring their brave fight against cancer. In addition to the giveaway, RNR donated $5,000 to local cancer treatment facilities and encouraged communities across the nation to support the cause with pink tire displays, uniforms and décor at participating locations.
“Cancer knows no age, no race, no religion, no gender, no economic status, this year alone more than 260,000 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer,” said Larry Sutton, president and founder of RNR. “This is a global problem that deserves a global solution, at RNR, we have the opportunity to make an impact in the fight, and give back to those who have already given up so much and we are honored to play a small role in helping fight for a cure”
