the “Brakes for Breasts” program kicks off and runs through the entire
time, our clients receive FREE brake pads or shoes.
They pay only
for the labor and any other ancillary parts that are necessary to complete the job.
Participating repair shops then donate 10% of the brake job cost to the Cleveland
Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine Fund. 100% of our proceeds go directly to research. Dr. Vincent
Tuohy has created a vaccine that has proven effective in laboratory animals, and has great promise for
eliminating breast cancer from our world!
The Story Behind “Brakes for Breasts”
In 2011, our very own Laura Frank and fellow shop owner Leigh Anne
Best began the “Brakes for Breasts” fundraiser with 5 local auto shops in Ohio. In
2012, they expanded “Brakes for Breasts” to 27 shops across 17 states, raising a
total of $66,499.29 for breast cancer research!
By 2015, the Brakes for Breasts annual campaign was growing like wildfire, with
174 shops on board across 32 states. The total amount to be donated was $141,868.76 bringing the total donated since
2011 to $366,453.42!
