Take a Drive, Fight Breast Cancer

Have you ever dreamt of cruising around town in a cool BMW? Well, now is your chance.

On Wednesday, Feb. 20 at Coggin Motor Mall in Fort Pierce you can do just that. Want to drive a sporty Z4 convertible? An X5 SUV more your style? Or maybe you’d like to do both – no obligation, no guilt, just pure fun – all for a good cause.

Better yet, for every mile you drive one of BMW’s special fleet of cars on Feb. 20, BMW will donate a dollar to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Does it get any better than that? You have fun, they make the donation.

This is the 12th year BMW has partnered with Susan G. Komen to provide the BMW Ultimate Drive experience. A special fleet of 25 BMW vehicles travels to different cities around the country. For every mile the cars are driven on a predetermined public route, BMW will donate $1 to Susan G. Komen. To date BMW has donated more than $11 million dollars. Their goal this year is to reach $12 million.

Susan G. Komen has done wonderful things for breast cancer. Nationally, people are smarter and lives are being saved as a result of the funds raised by Susan G. Komen for breast cancer education and research.

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure has formed a solidarity of survivors that has changed the way people think and act about cancer. Locally, the breast health navigator program at Martin Memorial is supported by grant funds from Susan G. Komen. The breast health navigator program also provides patient referrals to Pink Tie Friends, Inc., a local volunteer organization that helps pay for treatments for local breast cancer patients that are under-insured or uninsured. Together, we make a difference.

This year’s ultimate drive goes from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. To register for your opportunity to drive some fabulous BMW cars, call (877) 4-A-DRIVE.

Come have some fun, enjoy the festivities, drive a dream car and support breast cancer.
