Jiffy Lube Wheels of Hope coupons help patients get to cancer treatment
Jiffy Lube and Suds Car Wash wrapped up their fourth annual fundraising campaign in support of the Canadian Cancer Society’s Wheels of Hope patient transportation service. Since 2013, Jiffy Lube and Suds Car Wash and their customers have raised over $464,000 through the sale of their Wheels of Hope coupon book. These coupon books are sold for $3, and offer consumers $100 in savings on basic car maintenance services. Proceeds from the sale of these coupon books help the Canadian Cancer Society get patients to their life-saving treatment appointments.
The Wheels of Hope transportation patient service is the largest service of its kind in North America. Last year, the charity’s more than 2,500 volunteers drove 11 million plus kilometres across Ontario between patients’ homes and cancer treatment centres. This distance is equivalent to driving around the world 277 times!
“The Wheels of Hope patient transportation service helps thousands of people each year who have no way of getting to their cancer treatment,” says Tanya Nixon, senior manager of transportation for the Canadian Cancer Society in Ontario. “Thanks to our partnership with Jiffy Lube and Suds Car Wash, and the generous support of its customers, people living with cancer will continue on the road to recovery.”
This year, close to 200,000 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer. In Ontario, thousands of patients have no way of getting to and from cancer-related care or can’t afford the costs associated with travelling.
“Last year alone, the Canadian Cancer Society helped more than 11,000 patients in Ontario get to and from cancer treatment,” says Rick Morton, director of marketing, JL Management Group. “Jiffy Lube, Suds Car Wash and our amazing customers will continue to provide hope for our local cancer patients through every kilometre of their fight.”
