Chris Hazelwood was awarded $1,000 cash, a set of new tires and a VIP spa day package from RNR Tire Express.
RNR Tire Express (RNR), franchise retailer of tires and custom wheels, announced the winner of its 8th annual Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign. With the help of RNR franchisees around the country, their team donated a portion of all tire sales during the month of October – Breast Cancer Awareness Month – to foundations advancing the cause of breast cancer research and the search for a cure.
Chris Hazelwood, who is currently battling breast cancer, was selected as this year’s grand-prize winner after being nominated by a friend. 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 the team at RNR Tire Express.
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. 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.
The campaign is one of the longest-standing giveback initiatives in the brand’s 23-year history, the company said. It allows family and friends a chance to recognize those in their lives battling against breast cancer with a small token that lets them know they aren’t alone, and they have an entire community behind them.
“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.”
