In October, Apple Auto Glass, Broco Glass and Speedy Glass partnered with the Canadian Cancer Society to support women in their community living with breast cancer through the Drive Pink Campaign.

Teams from 58 service centres of Apple Auto Glass, Broco Glass and Speedy Glass across B.C. — including two Speedy Glass, one Broco Glass and one Apple Auto Glass centres in Kamloops — helped raise $4,500 via $2 from each pair or Trico wipers sold. Trico then matched that amount, for a total donation of $9,000 to the Drive Pink Campaign.

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian women. About one in eight women will develop this form of cancer in their lifetime and one in 31 will die from it.But progress is being made against breast cancer. The five-year net survival rate for this disease is now 87 per cent. Early detection and increased screening rates combined with better treatment therapies have resulted in at least a 44 per cent decrease in the breast cancer death rate since the late 1980s.
