COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Stanley Steemer®, the residential and commercial deep cleaning expert, is honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month early this year. This July, Stanley Steemer® will kick-off a cause marketing program to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.
As a National Series Sponsor of the 2013 Komen Race for the Cure, Stanley Steemer will donate $1.00 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for every room of residential carpet cleaned in July*. This month-long promotion will guarantee a minimum donation of $100,000. Throughout the year, Stanley Steemer locations will continue to be involved in local races across the country. The iconic yellow vans will be at every race, and a team of volunteers will encourage race participants and distribute Stanley Steemer materials.
Stanley Steemer activated their National Series Sponsorship in 2012. In that first year, Stanley Steemer raised a total of $155,000 in addition to their sponsorship. "We are very thankful for the amount of support we received from our customers last year," says Justin Bates, President of Stanley Steemer. "With their help this year, we hope to once again exceed our donation goal and continue to aid Susan G. Komen for the Cure in the fight against breast cancer."
Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women between the ages of 20 and 59. With the support of sponsors such as Stanley Steemer, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has been able to significantly increase survival rates up to 99 percent—a 74 percent increase over the past 30 years—and continue the funding of research, education, screening and treatment.
