Tire Dealers and Camso Raise Money for Pancreatic Cancer Research
Twenty-four tire dealers across the U.S. teamed up with Camso Inc. to raise more than $140,000 for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
The Camso Crushing Cancer 2019 program raised a total of $144,957.
The program ran for the months of August and September across Camso’s construction tire and track dealer network in the United States. During this period, on behalf of their dealers, the company donated a portion of the proceeds from the sale of select construction tires to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN).
“When we launched this program last August, little did we know that we would be able to raise such an important amount for our donation to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network,” says Jim Donoghue, director, marketing and sales support – North America at Camso. “Most of us know families who have been affected by this disease, and we are proud to support this cause.”
Camso expressed its thanks to the dealers for their support of this cause. The dealers are identified below.

“We are sincerely grateful for this generous gift from Camso and their dealers,” says Brooke Caviglia, PanCAN associate cirector, community engagement, “Their support will directly benefit thousands of pancreatic cancer patients and their families and will help in our fight against this deadly disease.”

Funds raised for PanCAN through the Camso Crushing Cancer 2019 program will advance critical research programs, including PanCAN’s Clinical Trial initiative, Precision PromiseSM, Early Detection Initiative (EDI), precision medicine initiative Know Your Tumor, additional field research, and other patient advocacy efforts – all to improve patient outcomes.
