1-800-PACK-RAT continues their initiative to give back to our local communities with the launch of their February personalized container commemorating National Cancer Prevention Month.

Approximately 1,600 people in the United States die of cancer each day, but the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) estimates that about one-third of the most common cases of cancer in the U.S. are preventable by a proper diet, staying active, and keeping a healthy body weight.  Managing these key factors could help prevent 374,000 people from developing cancer in their lifetime.

At 1-800-PACK-RAT, we believe that change starts by engaging with our communities - that’s why we’re continuing our year of giving back by donating up to $500 to Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) during the month of February.  SU2C is a charity that seeks to accelerate groundbreaking cancer research to make life-saving, new therapies available to cancer patients now.  SU2C also generates awareness and leads public education efforts on cancer prevention so that we may all live happy and healthy lives.

Request your personalized, digital container from 1-800-PACK-RAT’s Facebook page starting February 1st, 2017, and we will donate $5 to SU2C on your behalf for each container requested.  Share the container or post it on your timeline so that your friends and family can participate and help fight cancer as well!  For more information on National Cancer Prevention Month, visit the American Institute for Cancer Research.  For more information on Stand Up To Cancer or to learn how to get involved with their mission, visit their Get Involved page.
