The Pink Agenda, a nonprofit that partners with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, funds breast cancer research projects and advocacy efforts. Through this November 1st, Scooter’s Coffee customers will have the opportunity to support this lifesaving research by adding a donation to their order or purchasing a Courage Cookie – 20% of Courage Cookie sales will be donated to The Pink Agenda.
The color pink is symbolic of breast cancer awareness and is used to honor breast cancer thrivers and remember those who have lost their lives to the disease. A customer-favorite, the Scooter’s Coffee Courage Cookie is a sugar cookie with cream cheese frosting and pink sprinkles created specifically to raise funds to support critical research and awareness.
“Through our ongoing partnership with Scooter’s Coffee and the generosity of its customers, employees and franchise owners, The Pink Agenda can continue funding groundbreaking research and care needed to save lives with the goal of one day making breast cancer history,” said Serra Eken, Managing Director for The Pink Agenda. “We remain committed to raising awareness of this disease, especially among young professionals. It’s important to engage today’s generation to find tomorrow’s cure.”
Last year, more than 243,000 Courage Cookies were sold at Scooter’s Coffee with over $143,000 donated to The Pink Agenda. This year, Scooter’s Coffee customers also can add a donation to their order without purchasing a cookie.
“We admire those who have displayed tremendous courage in the fight against breast cancer, and we extend gratitude to our amazing customers and Scooter’s Coffee family who are supporting The Pink Agenda’s efforts to end this disease,” said Joe Thornton, President of Scooter’s Coffee, LLC.
The Pink Agenda is currently funding four research projects through the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. These projects aim to: improve survivorship and treatment approaches; eliminate disparities in access to care in ethnically diverse communities; investigate risk factors to inform preventative strategies; and test methods to stop metastasis of breast cancer to other parts of the body.
