Mikey's Towing paints their trucks pink for a good cause

Toronto, Ontario, November 25, 2011 – Citizens of Toronto and the surrounding area who have car problems over the Christmas holidays will likely notice something different about the Mikey's Towing fleet of trucks. As a show of support for breast cancer patients, Mikey's Towing has painted its trucks pink and has pledged to donate 5% of its profits in December to breast cancer research.

"I think almost everyone knows someone who has been affected by breast cancer," says Michael Dwyer, owner of Mikey's Towing. "The Christmas season is about giving, and we could think of no better cause to support than helping to fund research into a disease that affects so many people."

In addition to helping stranded motorists, the company's trucks will be making appearances at special events throughout Toronto in the coming month. "It's about more than just raising money for the cause," continues Dwyer. "We want to raise awareness and hopefully create some momentum so that more people join the fight. Keep your eyes open and you're bound to see one of our trucks during December."

For more information on how you can help in the fight against breast cancer, or for a list of locations where the pink trucks will be appearing, please contact the marketing manager of Mikey's Towing, Martha Peterson, at (555) 555-5555 or email
