I hope others will engage in this challenge and join us as well” said LPGA Golfer and Brand Ambassador Radar Tires, Jodi Ewart Shadoff.

Breast cancer is a cause that has been close to our heart and we will continue to contribute and support the mission of BCRF and the great work they do. I would like to invite our partners, customers, and the public in general to join us in this initiative and pledge along us”, said GS Sareen, founder and CEO of Omni United.

Play for P.I.N.K. is thrilled to have the support of Omni United and Radar Tires through their Brand Ambassador, Jodi Ewart Shadoff.  We are honored to have Jodi represent our organization and help raise additional funds.” said Stephanie Hamburger, Executive Director of Play for P.I.N.K.

Breast Cancer is a cause that has always been close to Omni United and Radar Tires’ heart. In 2011, Omni launched “Mobilizing Hope”, a corporate alliance with the BCRF that has included either donations for each Radar tire sold or one-off contributions. This year is the sixth consecutive year that Omni United will support BCRF. To date, the campaign has raised and donated over $1.1 million to BCRF’s mission of preventing and curing breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research. This contribution has funded approx. 22,000 hours of some of the world’s most promising and innovative research towards preventing and curing breast cancer in our lifetime.

Over the last six years Omni United and Radar Tires has supported BCRF’s cause not just through monetary donations but also through sponsoring and undertaking numerous initiatives to spread awareness for this cause and to bring the work of BCRF to the forefront of society. Some of the initiatives include:

  • Launching a limited edition “pink sidewall” tire, sold through Sears Auto Centers.
  • Encouraging our customers, tire distributors, dealers and retailers throughout the world to support the “Mobilizing Hope” campaign by providing them with in-store displays, pink ribbons and other awareness materials to distribute among customers.
  • Displaying the logo of the BCRF on all Radar Tires motorsports team’s racing cars and gear.
  • Supporting the BCRF in all international tire fairs and other events in which Omni United and Radar Tiresparticipates.
  • Launching awareness related programs with our brand ambassador Jodi Ewart Shadoff, especially during Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Omni United’s flagship brand Radar Tires signed Jodi as its brand ambassador in April 2016. Throughout October last year, Jodi pledged her support to the BCRF by wearing pink gear and had a specially designed pink golf bag as a symbol of hope and courage to further increase the visibility of the organization.

This year in October, Radar Tires and Jodi will again be joining their efforts to further increase the visibility and advancing the mission of BCRF. In addition to wearing pink gear and having a specially designed pink Radar Tires and BCRF golf bag, both Radar Tires and Jodi will be donating $100 each for every Birdie that Jodi makes in the following tournaments during the month of October:
