Francis & Sons Car Wash to raise money for diabetes research

May 2, 2011 - PRLog -- PHOENIX, AZ – May 2, 2011– Family-owned Valley car wash chain Francis & Sons is jumping in with both feet to raise money to find a cure for type 1 diabetes.   From now until the end of May, Francis & Sons will be encouraging patrons to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation by purchasing paper sneakers for $1. The company hopes to reach a goal of $12,000 in donations by May 31, 2011.

“I was thrilled to learn Francis and Sons wanted to partner with us for a sneaker campaign,” said Jenna Smith, Corporate Development Coordinator for JDRF.  “The community involvement by Francis and Sons will enhance our message and generate awareness in the Valley.  We are grateful for this partnership.”

All 16 Valley locations will be participating in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundations (JDRF) sneaker sales program this spring. In the fall, the car wash chain will gather its employees and their families, asking them to lace up their own sneakers to participate as a team in the JDRF Walk to Find a Cure on November 5.

“We are extremely excited and honored to be involved with this wonderful cause,” said Jeff Francis, of Francis and Sons Car Wash.  “Our entire family and staff has really embraced this fundraiser and hopes to surpass the goal of $12,000.”

The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications through the support of research. Since its inception, JDRF has provided nearly $1.3 billion to diabetes research worldwide.
