     Ford 2014


    2014 marked Ford Motor Company’s 20th year in the fight against breast cancer and as a National Series Sponsor of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.® To date, Ford has dedicated more than $125 million to the cause. Its commitment goes beyond raising funds. Ford knows the importance of awareness and early detection, and is active in driving the conversation about breast health. From designing a full line of Warriors in Pink® apparel to raise funds, to creating a broad reach in the media to generate awareness and conducting a survey to help people keep breast health top of mind, Ford continues both driving the conversations that could lead to early detection and raising the funds that help support the cause.

    Additionally, Ford has partnered with various celebrities to help achieve its goal. Previous celebrity partnerships included Jennifer Aniston, Martha Stewart, James Denton and Gilles Marini. In 2013, stars from popular network TV series such as 2 Broke Girls, The Amazing Race, Hostages and Elementary promoted Warriors in Pink to encourage the sale of Warriors in Pink wear and gear, with 100 percent of the net proceeds going to the cause. Ford employees create teams and gather en masse to support Race for the Cure events, with thousands of Ford Dealers supporting the Race in their areas.

    MDC bullet 1Ford Warriors in Pink Models of Courage:



    Every person affected by breast cancer begins a journey. Ford Warriors in Pink helps support that journey. Warrior symbols, which signify strength, courage, hope,
    love, unity and remembrance, appear on Warriors in Pink wear and gear sold at www.fordcares.com. In honor of the 20th anniversary, Ford is introducing
    20 new Models of Courage – 20 new voices rising to support the cause, one of which is that of Komen’s very own Cati Stone. Cati is a four-year breast cancer
    survivor and is the executive director of the Susan G. Komen of Greater Atlanta affiliate 

    The 2014 Models of Courage will continue to represent Warriors in Pink and act as ambassadors who reach out to help and encourage others facing the disease and drive the conversation about breast health. Meet Cati and the rest of the new Models of Courage on http://www.warriorsinpink.ford.com/models-of-courage/.
