"Mohawk has contributed more than $1 million to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation through ‘Decorate for the Cure' promotions in the past," said Mohawk svp Ed Williams. "Our dealers are a big reason for the success of this program, and the CD tie in not only helps the Foundation, but it allows consumers to see the connection our dealers have with this wonderful organization. The music will help remind listeners of this association. And it is a very positive way to continue gathering funds for the foundation."
Breast cancer remains the most common form of cancer among women in the United States. More than 200,000 individuals will be diagnosed with the disease this year, and 40,000 will die from it. Eighty-five percent of the women who get breast cancer have no family history of the disease.
Retailers interested in participating are advised to contact their Mohawk representative. To learn more about the Susan G. Komen foundation, visit www.komen.org or call the National Toll-Free Breast Cancer Helpline at 1-800-IMAWARE.
