Busch USA Takes Up the Fight Against Breast Cancer with Charity Event

This year, as in past years, Busch Vacuum Pumps and Systems in the USA is helping to fight breast cancer by raising money for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. The proceeds will go to a local charity that is part of the “Making Strides” network.

In 2016, employees of Busch plunged into the spirit of anti-cancer fundraising by organizing a "bake sale" and baked goods auction. Over $750 was raised at the event and donated to "Making Strides of Hampton Roads", a walking event that took place on 22 October, 2016. Busch USA is located in Virginia Beach, part of the Hampton Roads metropolitan area.

Additionally, $1,702 in raffle tickets were sold and donations made online. Along with coin collections in change jars and other fundraising, the total amount raised is almost $3,800.

"Making Strides" events date back to 1984 when a cancer survivor from Massachusetts organized a so-called "move-along-a-thon". This first event attracted 200 participants. Since these early days, 11 million walkers have taken part in Making Strides events, raising over $685 million to fight breast cancer.
