CALGARY, Oct. 1 /CNW/ - During October, Fabutan Sun Studios is asking its customers to give a Ray of Hope to the one-in-nine Canadian women who are diagnosed with breast cancer.
Each October, Fabutan studios across Canada work together to help support the Vitamin D Society's fight against this disease: the fundraiser coincides with the start of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
"Fabutan became involved in the fight against breast cancer through the Ray of Hope campaign eight years ago," explained Doug McNabb, Fabutan president. "We are proud of the contribution our franchisees, employees and customers have made in their communities, to help end such a devastating disease."
For only $10, Fabutan clients can add 125 minutes to any tanning package: that $10 will then be donated to the Vitamin D Society by Fabutan, for the fight against breast cancer. Last year Fabutan raised over $97,000 for the Vitamin D Society. This brings the total amount raised by the Ray of Hope campaign to $433,000.
The Vitamin D Society is an independent non-profit organization that raises awareness and funds research relating to Vitamin D and its possible affects on breast cancer.
