Why Shred for Cancer?

"When one of our franchisees was stricken with an inoperable brain tumor and we saw the amazing fight he had to beat this disease (he continues to fight to this day), we knew that we had to find an organization just as committed as David was to fighting this disease. For us at proshred we wanted an organization that had the same beliefs we had – education, prevention, and knowledge are the best ways to stop this disease, and AICR lives this every day, their research is aimed at education and prevention. We at PROSHRED know that we can help make a difference, and will do everything we can to help do that."

Annual "Shred Cancer" Event Aims to Raise $50,000 for Cancer Prevention Research

WASHINGTON, DC – The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) and PROSHRED® Security (Proshred) will host their fourth annual, nationwide “Shred Cancer” event on Saturday, June 3.  Community members are invited to bring their personal documents to be securely shredded while raising funds for cancer research around prevention.

The event will be held throughout the country: 28 Proshred locations are expected to participate. Event times will vary by location.

Individuals may bring up to five boxes of documents to one of PROSHRED® Security's on-site shredding trucks to safely and securely dispose of unwanted personal documents. The event is free to attend and a suggested donation of $5 per box will go directly towards funding AICR’s cancer research and education programs.  Several locations will host additional events and raffles. KIND will generously donate snacks to the Northern Virginia and Baltimore area events. 

Generous support from millions of individual Americans—and not government or industry grants—have allowed AICR to fund emerging research and to continue our programs for educating the public about what practical steps we all can take every day to live in a world with less cancer,” said AICR Senior Vice President of Development Mary Beth Healy,  “The funds raised by the ProShred community makes a significant impact on the health of millions of Americans.”

Jeffrey Hasham, Chief Executive Officer of PROSHRED® Security, commented, “We at ProShred are extremely privileged to have the opportunity to contribute to the crucial research conducted by AICR.  Over the last 35 years AICR's work has led to increased awareness between diet, exercise and the prevention of many cancers.  It is our hope that our collective efforts across the ProShred system will raise awareness and money for the work AICR conducts. We hope to see everyone on Saturday, June 3, 2017, at our Nationwide Shred Event, together we can Shred Cancer."

First held in 2014 on National Cancer Survivors Day, past events have contributed over $100,000 to cancer research. This year AICR and PROSHRED® Security have set a goal to raise $50,000 for research.
