We would like to start by saying thank you in advance to the VIOC SCM's for their efforts to make the donations for this great cause possible. It is through their focus and dedication that so many of our customers make donations to help each year. Pictured on our team page are the team members, their families & friends that were able to participate in Great Strides 2019. Thank you team, it is a privilege to walk beside you.
Valvoline Instant Oil Change is proud to partner with the Cincinnati Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). This will be our seventh year participating in the Great Strides walk and to date we have raised more than $88,000 in donations over the last six years. 2019 was another solid year for us, as we raised $30,667.
We will again be doing our annual pin up donation drive this fall at your local VIOC stores. I know our leadership team will once again be focused on driving huge results for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. So please come in, get an oil change with great service and a smile, then donate to a worthwhile cause! We will also be doing a personal donation drive amongst the leadership team ahead of this year's Great Strides walk and our goal will be $5,500.
Our reason for choosing CFF seven years ago was simple. Cystic Fibrosis does not draw as much national support the way many other causes do, but finding a cure for CF is just as important. Everyone loves an underdog and we are determined to help find a cure in any way we can.
We look forward to seeing all of our friends & family at this year's walk and thank you all for your support!
