For the past four years KC Subaru has participated in the annual Scoobies for Boobies fundraiser.
What is Scoobies for Boobies you ask?
"Scoobies for Boobies (SFB) was created in 2008 by a group of like minded – Subaru loving women to promote awareness in the community and to raise money to fund research for a cure. Money raised 2008-2010 was donated to the American Cancer Society’s (ACS) “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.”Starting in 2011, Scoobies for Boobies donated money raised to the Keep A Breast Foundation (KAB). KAB’s mission is to help eradicate breast cancer by exposing young people to the methods of prevention, early detection and support. Through art events, educational programs and fundraising efforts, they seek to increase breast cancer awareness among youth people so they are better equipped to make choices and develop habits that will benefit their long-term health and well-being."
To date over $47,000+ dollars has been raised through the Scoobies for Boobies fundraising effort. This effort is supported by the Subaru enthusiast community through individual donations and those through sponsorship opportunities.
KC Subaru's Part in Scoobies for Boobies
Of the $47,000+ dollars donated, KC Subaru has contributed $1,045 dollars over the last three years. We are at it again for our fourth year of sponsoring Scoobies for Boobies with a new fundraising goal of $500 or more for this year.
So what does donating to the Scoobies for Boobies effort through KC Subaru do?
By donating through the KC Subaru group sponsorship effort you are helping us achieve nationwide recognition for KC Subaru. It shows we give back not only through local wildlife conservation efforts, group outings and helpful support for local members, but also to national causes. When KC Subaru reaches the goal of $500 we get our logo placed as a sponsor for Scoobies for Boobies both on the t-shirts printed nationwide and their website.
This isn't just about our logo on t-shirts and websites though. It is about being a part of a solution. We all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer. Just think, every three minutes a woman in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, which equates to 12% of women born today being diagnosed in their lifetime. Not just women can get breast cancer, so can men! In 2010 there were 263,070 people diagnosed in America with breast cancer.
Help KC Subaru fight breast cancer by helping us support Team Scoobies for Boobies effort to raise money to help eradicate this nasty cancer through helping Keep A Breast Foundation provide young people with methods of prevention, early detection, and support.
