Valvoline Instant Oil Change (VIOC) customers helped fight cancer this fall by contributing $1 or more to the Jimmy Fund through the A Chance for Kids & Families program. The Jimmy Fund solely supports Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, raising funds for adult and pediatric cancer care and research to improve the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world.
This year was the seventh year that VIOC participated in the fundraising program to benefit the Jimmy Fund. VIOC raised $56,410 totaling their contribution to the Jimmy Fund through the A Chance for Kids and Families program to over $297,400 since 2014.
“Dana-Farber is one of the leading cancer institutes in the world and fundraising for their life saving work is more important now than ever,” said Don Smith, CEO of Henley Enterprises, Inc, the largest franchisee of Valvoline Instant Oil Change. “We are extremely proud of the amount raised for The Jimmy Fund this year. Every dollar truly makes a huge impact on compassionate patient care and ground-breaking research being done at the institute.”
“For the past 7 years, Valvoline Instant Oil Change has been supporting Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund through A Chance for Kids and Families,” said Suzanne Fountain, vice president of the Jimmy Fund. “It’s inspiring to see support from stores and customers throughout New England. This program is a true testament to the generous spirit of Valvoline Instant Oil Change and their loyal customers. We thank them for their continued partnership as we move one step closer to a world without cancer.”
