For the first time in AAA's more than 100-year history, it is painting its classic red, white and blue tow trucks pink to raise awareness of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in collaboration with the American Cancer Society. Pink AAA tow trucks will service Chicago, Detroit and Orlando during the month of October.
Gerry Gutowski, Sr. Vice President, AAA Automotive Services, The Auto Club Group, said in a statement, "We assist more than 25 percent of the driving public with AAA roadside assistance—and our service vehicles are seen on our nation's roadways by millions of motorists each day. Our hope is that pink tow trucks will garner attention and spread awareness to help in the fight against breast cancer, which is the second leading cause of cancer death in women."
AAA will also play an integral role in helping to host over 3,000 walkers expected on October 20th for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk at Montrose Harbor in Chicago.
