Casey Auto Group Sponsors Breast Cancer Walk, Shows Off Pink Camaro

NEWPORT NEWS, Virginia—Casey Auto Group is one of several sponsors for the 2013 Peninsula, Virginia, Making Strides for Breast Cancer Walk in Newport News, benefiting the American Cancer Society. The walk takes place on Saturday, October 12, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. at the Mariners’ Museum on 100 Museum Drive in Newport News, Virginia.

To register for the walk, please visit www.makingstrideswalk.org/peninsulava. It is $25 to register online and $35 on the day of the event.

This breast cancer walk is personal to the local dealership group, as Mr. Casey’s own wife, Judy Casey, as well as JoAnn Hitt (wife of VP Bruce Hitt) will both be walking as cancer survivors. The auto group has its own team, called the Casey Crusaders, which consists of 50 people, most of whom are dealership employees. This is the second year for the dealership to sponsor the event and to have its own team during the walk.

“Making Strides is a very important event for the Casey Auto Group,” commented Bruce Hitt, Vice President, Casey Auto. “Many of our employees have been touched in some way by breast cancer. We realize that through awareness we as a group can make a difference in the fight against this epidemic.”

Casey Auto Group will have a tent at the walk with a pink Chevy Camaro on display, specially designed for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Guests to the tent can enjoy pink-themed giveaways, which include pink lunchboxes, nail files, pens, and change purses.

Casey Auto will also have a “pink out” day on the day prior to the walk, Friday, October 11, 2013, on which all employees will wear pink. The intention is to show support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Making Strides event.

For more information on Casey Auto Group’s involvement, please contact Sandra Jackson, Benefits Coordinator, at (757) 591-1035 or by emailing s_jackson@caseyauto.com.
