Hogan & Sons Tire and Auto sponsored several fundraising events at its eight locations in Northern Virginia to help raise more than $12,000 to raise awareness of pediatric cancer in partnership with the StillBrave Childhood Cancer Foundation.
The money will go toward sponsoring eight miles of a 206-mile endurance ultramarathon in honor of children fighting cancer and for those who lost their lives. StillBrave’s founder, “Tattoo” Tom Mitchell, who is running the race, is dedicating each mile of the race in honor of a particular child. He started the foundation after losing his teenage daughter to cancer in 2009 and now dedicates his life in providing support and care to children and families facing this deadly childhood disease.
“Hogan & Sons was honored to be part of this effort to help those children fighting against such a deadly disease. We are grateful for the contributions of our community and staff who helped support this foundation. The partnership between local business and charity is truly a testament to the great things we can accomplish collectively to improve the community and save children’s lives,” owner Phillip Hogan stated.
