"Ride for a Cure" to Match Free Bus Rides in Donations
Posted on Oct 13 , 2018
We’ve all been affected by cancer. Ride for a Cure is a team effort to support Susan G. Komen and the American Cancer Society so that someday, no family will lose a loved one to cancer. Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys, Shreveport Area Transit System (SporTran), Capital Area Transit System (CATS), and Lamar Advertising Company have partnered with Susan G. Komen and the American Cancer Society to Ride for a Cure. On Monday, October 15, the Get Gordon team will provide a day of free bus rides on the hot pink buses in Shreveport and in Baton Rouge. For every free ride in the newly-wrapped hot pink buses, Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys will match the amount in donations to Susan G. Komen and the American Cancer Society. Gordon McKernan decided to extend awareness beyond the month of October to a year-round effort by wrapping two SporTran buses in hot pink, and Lamar Advertising Company is supporting the cause by donating digital billboard space. Gordon McKernan’s goals for the Ride for a Cure campaign are to foster awareness of breast cancer and other types of cancer, bring year-round visibility to this cause by wrapping SporTran and CATS buses in hot pink, and encourage others to donate to Susan G. Komen and the American Cancer Society.
