Ace Parking “Park for Pink Campaign” to Benefit Sisters Network® Inc. During National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Houston, TX. September 28, 2020 — Sisters Network® Inc. (SNI), the nation’s largest and only national African American breast cancer survivor-run organization and a leader in the Black Breast Cancer movement is pleased to announce an official partnership with ACE Parking’s PARK FOR PINK campaign, an award-winning initiative that raises awareness and generates funds to support national cancer organizations. This year, ACE has pledged its financial support to Sisters Network to draw attention to the disproportionate impact breast cancer has in the Black community. Funds raised from the 2020 PARK FOR PINK campaign will directly benefit Sisters Network’s Breast Cancer Awareness Program (BCAP), a program that provides financial assistance to breast cancer survivors impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and mammograms for early detection.
During the month of October, each time a customer parks with ACE, a portion of their parking proceeds is allocated to the fight against breast cancer as well as other community enhancing programs. This year, with parking revenue down 90%, ACE’s owners have committed to continue and expand the reach of the PARK FOR PINK campaign by personally guaranteeing a sizable contribution to Sisters Network’s important BCAP program. ACE also plans to develop a long-term partnership with Sisters Network as part of their annual tradition to make an impact on women’s lives through the continued support of their customers.
Black women have the highest breast cancer death rate of any racial/ethnic group, 40% more likely to die than Caucasian women. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among African American women.
“Sisters Network appreciates ACE supporting the important work our organization continues to do as we address the disproportionate and deadly impact breast cancer has in the Black community,” said Karen E. Jackson, Founder/CEO, Sisters Network® Inc. “Funds raised for our BCAP program from ACE’s PARK FOR PINK campaign will help survivors who are in need of financial assistance now more than ever due to economic and public health crisis as a result of the pandemic.” “While the pandemic has had a major impact on our company (like so many other companies), we believe it is important to continue our annual PARK FOR PINK to raise awareness of breast cancer,” said Keith B. Jones, Managing Partner/Owner, ACE Parking. “Using our established PARK FOR PINK platform, we believe we can help raise awareness that Black women are disproportionately “dealt a fatal hand” when they are diagnosed with breast cancer due to the inequality of health care. This can change; and the important work Sisters Network Inc. is doing can help lead this positive change.”
