Join the Fight Against Breast Cancer and Win a 2017 Ford Fusion

October 20th, 2016

At Borgman Ford, we’re proud to stand with the women of West Michigan and Ford in the fight against Breast Cancer. For October Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are highlighting some of the ways you can get involved and show support, whether your life has been affected by Breast Cancer or not. Read on below for more information on the different programs Ford has in place.

The Warriors in Pink Collection

wip_16_scarf_2One of the ways Ford brings the fight to breast cancer is through their Warriors in Pink collection of clothing. Each year, Ford creates original wear and gear that you can feel doubly good about buying. Whether you’re buying for yourself or a loved one, 100% of the net proceeds go to support organizations fighting breast cancer including The Pink Fund, Susan G. Komen, Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation and Young Survival Coalition. You may even choose a preferred charity at checkout!

The More Good Days Initiative

Screen Shot 2016-10-19 at 12.33.27 PMMost breast cancer patients find themselves exhausted, overwhelmed and feeling alone – categorizing their days by good days and bad. While many people want to help, most are unsure of the best way to show support. In 2015, Ford Warriors in Pink launched its More Good Days initiative – a simple, yet powerful drive to bring more good days to those living with breast cancer.

Through More Good Days, Ford is empowering people to take real action to help those battling the disease, ultimately giving them more of what they deserve – more good days. Since the launch of this initiative, Warriors in Pink has granted more than 60,000 good day experiences across the country – ranging from rides to treatment centers, and meal and errand-scheduling services.

To help eliminate the hassle of grocery shopping and meal planning, Ford has collaborated with Green Chef – the first and leading national USDA-certified organic meal kit delivery service – to provide free organic meal kits to patients. To help alleviate another pressing daily concern patients have, Warriors in Pink is also working with the nonprofit Cleaning for a Reason to provide free assistance with household chores. Warriors in Pink has also distributed free inspirational postcards and gift baskets, and provided surprise experiences for breast cancer patients and survivors.

You can learn more about the initiative by Reading This Article about a breast cancer study conducted by Ford, or by visiting
