TROY, MI — Meritor is supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month, both here at home and over in France.
On October 12 and 13, Meritor MotorSports-sponsored truck driver Ellen Lohr raced her pink-wrapped Buggyra truck in truck in the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) European Truck Racing Championship in Le Mans, France.
Lohr, with 27 years of motorsports experience behind her, is the only woman driver to win a race in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft, the international German touring championship.
Meritor has been sponsoring Lohr since 2012, providing axles and brakes for her truck.
Back home in Michigan, Meritor is running a month-long “Carnations for the Cure” for the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute. For $10, employees can buy a dozen pink carnations to remind the women in their life the importance of getting mammograms regularly.
Meritor is also selling pink merchandise for the month of October, available here. Thirty percent of the sales will be donated to the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute.
The company also sponsored “Trucking for a Cure,” which raised $50,000 to support the Canadian Breast Cancer Association, and Zeta Tau Alpha’s 7thAnnual 5K Run, a fundraising event at Michigan State University for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
