GARDENA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#BreastCancerAwarenessCarroll
Shelby’s Store
is teaming up with the National
Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.
in the race against breast cancer.
During October 2016, Carroll Shelby’s Store will donate $5 to the
Foundation for each exclusive breast cancer awareness t-shirt and hat
purchased through it; the funds will be used for prevention and research
programs.


“For almost five decades, Shelby has supported great non-profit
organizations for a wide range of important causes,” said Neil
Cummings
, Co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International, CEO of Carroll
Shelby Licensing, Co-Trustee of the Carroll Hall Shelby Trust and Board
member of the Carroll Shelby Foundation. “Everyone has been touched by
cancer, whether themselves or someone who has fallen to this terrible
disease. We’re partnering with NBCF as they race to help women detect
breast cancer early so they can overcome it with the right resources.”

Breast cancer is among the leading health crises for women in the United
States; 1 in 8 individuals will be diagnosed in their lifetime. National
Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. was founded in 1991 by breast cancer
survivor, Janelle Hail. With so little information available about the
disease at the time of her diagnosis, she was forced to make health
decisions with few options. After her treatment, Janelle committed to
educating women worldwide about breast cancer and the importance of
early detection. Today, NBCF provides resources including free
mammograms, inspiration and support to those affected by this deadly
disease.

“We’re grateful to be partnering with Carroll Shelby’s Store to help to
provide early detection, education and support services so that no one
faces breast cancer alone,” said Brooke Walford, Corporate Partner
Manager for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. “There is currently
no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to
survival. With support from companies like Carroll Shelby’s Store, we
can give hope to women in need who cannot otherwise afford these
potentially life-saving screenings and resources.”

During October, Shelby fans are encouraged to join in the support during
Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For every exclusive Shelby breast cancer
awareness t-shirt or hat purchased, Carroll Shelby’s Store will donate
$5 to the Foundation. If purchased together, $10 will go to the charity.
The special hat and t-shirt are only available through www.shelbystore.com
or inside Carroll Shelby’s Store at Shelby
American
in Las Vegas.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to join the fight against
breast cancer,” said Ari
Kopmar
, Executive Vice President, Consumer Initiatives, Carroll
Shelby International. “Carroll Shelby’s Store is excited to team up with
National Breast Cancer Foundation for this campaign. Our new t-shirt and
hat, available exclusively through the store, will help put the brakes
on this terrible disease.”
