Uber partners with Banner Health to help drive out breast cancer
PHOENIX — Arizonans can help support the fight against breast cancer this October simply by taking a ride with Uber.
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the popular ridesharing company will donate $1 to Banner Health Foundation for each ride taken from Oct. 24 through Oct. 31. Riders just need to select the “pink view” option on the app before catching a ride and Uber will complete the donation.
The promotion is valid throughout Arizona, and funds will directly benefit Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center services.
Uber and Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center will hold a news conference Monday, Oct. 24 at 11 a.m. in the center’s north parking lot to kick off the week-long promotion. The event will feature demonstrations of the mobile app’s “pink view” and speakers such as Uber’s Arizona General Manager Steve Thompson and Banner MD Anderson CEO Lamont Yoder.
