Partnership to raise breast cancer awareness during October, celebrating UBCF’s 2oth year of service
HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (PRWEB) OCTOBER 17, 2020
The United Breast Cancer Foundation is excited and proud to announce their partnership with NASCAR driver JJ Yeley of Rick Ware Racing. UBCF and JJ Yeley joined forces to raise awareness for breast cancer this October to #DriveOutBreastCancer, as UBCF celebrates 20 years of service to the community.
UBCF is the title sponsor of Yeley’s car #27 for the Hollywood Casino 400 NASCAR Cup Series at the Kansas Speedway this Sunday, October 18. The race can be watched on NBC Sports at 2:30 pm EST.
Yeley’s car #27 sports a beautiful wrap of UBCF’s logo, ribbon and colors in vibrant pink and blue on a white background. UBCF thanks Pratt Homes of Tyler, Texas as a generous associate sponsor.
JJ Yeley and American Media Group approached UBCF with this opportunity to help provide public awareness and exposure for the services that UBCF provides to those affected by breast cancer. JJ shared, “I am so thrilled to represent The United Breast Cancer Foundation on my Rick Ware Racing #27 for one of the final elimination events before the Championship race in Phoenix. Having a breast cancer survivor in my family during the month of October’s National Breast cancer awareness month makes this new partnership that much more special. The programs that UBCF has in place to help both Women and Men is amazing as both are affected by this devastating disease.”
UBCF’s mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of those affected by breast cancer. Seven programs are offered to women, men and families nationwide. While rare, men can develop breast cancer too. UBCF encourages women and men to learn the self-breast exam (available for free) and talk to your medical provider if you detect anything abnormal, early detection saves lives.
United Breast Cancer Foundation Executive Director, Ms. Stephanie Mastroianni said, “UBCF has a growing relationship with the NASCAR community beginning in 2016. For our 20th anniversary to have JJ Yeley, a 16 year seasoned NASCAR driver, racing the fully wrapped UBCF car #27 in October gives us all hope. Hope is what we all need, especially during such a challenging year for all of us – hope that people want to help each other for the better. Everyone who has been a part of bringing this opportunity to fruition has been directly affected and impacted by breast cancer, so there was a great deal of sensitivity on how to get this done in respect and honor to all.”
