“FREE MAMMOGRAMS FOR THE FANS” BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND IN VEGAS
AFTER MAKING INAUGURAL 2015 APPEARANCE IN DALLAS

 

Before you can “talk the talk” you have to “walk the walk.” And that is exactly what Alexis DeJoria Racing (ADR) is doing in the fight against breast cancer. While other professional sports franchises have their players wear pink uniforms or use pink equipment to raise awareness about breast cancer, Kalitta Motorsports’ ADR team is taking it a step further by offering female race fans a free mammogram in a “mammovan” while attending an NHRA race with the “Free Mammograms for the Fans” program.

ADRlogo

 

This will mark the third year that three-time Funny Car winner Alexis DeJoria will work with the Nevada Health Centers (NVHC) to offer any female ticketholder over the age of 40 a free mammogram while attending the race, regardless of health insurance status, at the NHRA Toyota Nationals in Las Vegas.   In addition, she has partnered with Baylor Health Care Systems (BHCS) for a similar program at the AAA NHRA FallNationals in suburban Dallas.

 

“With the success of ‘Free Mammograms for the Fans’ the last two years, we decided to expand the program to include the Dallas race, which now falls during National Breast Cancer Awareness month in October,” said DeJoria, an Austin resident who will proudly sport a hot pink Patrόn XO Cafe Incendio Toyota Camry Funny Car throughout October in NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series competition.

 

The addition of presenting sponsors Patrón Spirits Company and Toyota assisted the program’s growth to Dallas and the Texas Motorplex.

 

“I really want to thank the Patrón Spirits Company and Toyota for their support, as well as Kalitta Motorsports, everyone who bought items on our eBay fundraising page, purchased our pink Fight Like a Girl bracelets and made donations,” said DeJoria, who has qualified for the NHRA Countdown to the Championship playoffs. “It all goes toward this very wonderful life-saving cause and we would not be able to provide this service to our fans without their support.”

Both Patrón and Toyota have been long-time sponsors of DeJoria’s Funny Car.

 

“Toyota is extremely supportive of everything that each of our teams do to help promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we are excited that working extensively with Alexis DeJoria Racing on their ‘Free Mammograms for the Fans’ program has afforded us the opportunity to make an additional impact,” said Ed Laukes, Vice President marketing, performance and guest experience for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A.  “If we are able to save the life of so much as one mother, daughter, sister, wife or friend, it will be well worth our additional investment in our partners at DeJoria. It truly is rewarding to be able to assist one of our race teams on a program that is so meaningful to so many people.”

 

Those wanting to get screened at the race do not need an appointment or referral. Although health insurance is not required, those who are insured should bring their insurance information to the race. Test results will be sent via mail approximately ten days following the event.

 

Baylor Health Care Systems will be on-site at the Texas Motorplex for the AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals, October 16-17, and Nevada Health Centers will be on-site at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the NHRA Toyota Nationals, October 30-31.   Each will have their “mammovans,” mobile mammography units, parked in the nitro pits on Friday and Saturday of the race weekends.

Community Investment – Your Dollars at Work
The Southern Nevada Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®- along with those who generously support the organization with their talent, time and resources – is working to better the lives of those facing breast cancer in our community. Through events like the Komen Southern Nevada Race for the Cure®, we have invested more than $6 million in local breast health and breast cancer projects in Southern Nevada over the past 17 years. Up to 75 percent of net proceeds generated by the Affiliate provide grants for innovative community programs that reduce breast cancer mortality through screening, treatment, education and safety-net services, while the remaining 25 percent supports groundbreaking breast cancer research grants.

The Southern Nevada Affiliate conducts a biannual community needs assessment that helps guide our work and establishes goals for granting priorities, education needs, public policy efforts, and strategic operations. This community profile identifies service gaps, barriers, and community needs and ensures that our local investments will be effective and impactful. This year, the Affiliate funded over $837,000 in local breast health programs for the uninsured and underserved in Las Vegas and surrounding areas, while providing $150,000 to breast cancer research.
