RNR Tire Express (RNR), the franchise retailer for tires and custom wheels, revealed the winner of its annual Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, the company announced.
With the help of RNR franchisees around the country, the team donated a portion of all tire sales during October – Breast Cancer Awareness Month – to foundations advancing the cause of breast cancer research and the search for a cure., the company said.
Chris Hazelwood, who is currently battling breast cancer, was also selected as this year’s winner after being nominated by a friend. Despite her ongoing battle, Hazelwood still finds time to help grow her community, actively volunteering with Meals on Wheels, National Breast Cancer Foundation Fab Over 40 and her own nonprofit, Breast Cancer Hub, which raises awareness, education and research for breast cancer, the company said. Hazelwood also provides support to fellow cancer patients through A Hug in a Box and a group called ROSE, both of which allow her to spread her unwavering positivity with others.
Selected as this year’s grand prize recipient, Hazelwood was awarded a THINK PINK package, which includes $1,000 cash, a set of new tires, and a VIP spa day package, all courtesy of RNR Tire Express.
“To be able to provide a source of positivity by giving back to those who have survived or are fighting breast cancer is a great honor for the RNR Tire Express family” said Larry Sutton, founder and CEO of RNR Tire Express. “Seeing this initiative grow year-after-year is an incredibly rewarding and uplifting opportunity. Being able to provide joy not just to survivors and fighters, but to their friends and family, is a unique circumstance that is never lost on us.”
