Cart for the Cure™ aids Saint Luke's Foundation

Since 2011, Labconco has been a sponsor for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Kansas City. A great number of Labconco associates volunteered at the water station and we even had a good number running the race along with some of their family members.

To enhance our involvement in this cause, Labconco has a limited-time promotion each year called Cart for the Cure™ where our popular Portable Table painted the Breast Cancer Awareness Pink color is offered for $100 off the regular price. We take it a step further though—for each Pink Cart sold, Labconco donates $50 to the Saint Luke’s Foundation to help provide free mammograms to women and men who couldn’t afford them.

Through our fundraising efforts and Pink Cart sales in 2016, we were able present a check to the Saint Luke’s Foundation for $1,817.00. They use their Pink Cart frequently, especially when performing ultrasounds. During our visit, we saw their new 3D mammography-imaging machine. This advanced device can detect breast cancer in its earlier stages and is particularly effective for patients with dense breast tissue and those who have an increased genetic risk for breast cancer.

In order to teach the public more about breast cancer, St. Luke’s Foundation offers speaking engagements with St. Luke’s own Radiology Technician, Sallie Brackman. Her visits to organizations bring breast cancer awareness to the forefront and educate audiences on the importance of self-examinations and regular mammograms.

The Pink Cart for the Cure is available for sale all year long, as are Labconco’s donations; however, the discount applies during the fall promotion only. If a cart is needed in your laboratory, consider Labconco’s Pink Cart. You will get a great cart with a lifetime warranty, and your purchase will earn another $50 donation to the St. Luke’s Foundation.
