If cancer hasn’t affected you or someone you know, you’re in the minority. Most of us have championed for friends and family as they’ve battled the disease. Some of us have celebrated with our loved ones at their victory, while others have mourned at the loss of our loved ones.
The truth is, this terrible disease has affected so many of us, and those of us in the Chimney Sweeping industry are ready for a change. That’s why we band together every October (which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month) to educate those in our local communities, and raise awareness and money for research. Chimney Sweeps across the globe are working to Sweep Away Cancer, and you can be a part of the movement, too.
Whether you’re the owner of a Chimney Sweeping business and you want to donate part of your October earnings towards finding a cure, or you want to help us raise funds and awareness by sporting a pink “Sweeps For A Cure” shirt or giving your customers “Sweep Away Cancer” koozies to get the conversation started with your customers, we’re excited to have you working with us towards a cure. For ideas on how you can help raise awareness and money, visit our Join The Movement page!
What Is Sweep Away Cancer?
Sweep Away Cancer is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was founded by Tommy Nelms and Mark Stoner in September of 2015. These two competitors came together to join forces and raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research by asking those within their own industry (the Chimney Sweeping industry) to get involved. Last year, with very little time to get the word out, we were able to raise more than $15,000 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, and this year, we think we can do even better. Will you join us? Get your pink t-shirts and koozies today and start the conversation with your customers!
