Dutch Bros Coffee and the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute want everyone to Be Aware of Breast Cancer

GRANTS PASS, ORE (Oct. 1, 2016) - To celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month, all Dutch Bros Coffee locations will donate proceeds from the sale of its specialty “Be Aware” travel mugs to the advancement of breast cancer research at Oregon Health & Science University Knight Cancer Institute

 

Beginning on Saturday, Oct. 1 these specialty travel mugs will be available at all locations. Dutch Bros will donate $5 from the sale of every mug to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research and the development of new techniques for detection, treatment and prevention.

 

“The OHSU Knight Cancer Institute is doing an amazing job in breast cancer research,” said Dutch Bros Co-Founder, Travis Boersma. “I cannot be more proud to partner with an organization that has such credibility and a tremendous track record for really making a difference. It’s an honor to be a part such impactful work.”

 

Dutch Bros locations will donate funds raised throughout the month to the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Knight Cancer Institute. Funds will directly benefit this institute as they continue their research. Donated funds support top researchers at OHSU as they discover new forms of breast cancer detection, treatment and prevention. 

 

“We are grateful for the support the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute has received from Dutch Bros and the Dutch Bros community over the years,” said Brian Druker, M.D., director of the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. “These valuable dollars will help our mission to build an early detection cancer research program, with the ultimate goal to end cancer as we know it.”
