In recognition of National Asbestos Awareness Week (4/1 – 4/7), BAN! partnered with Doug Haslam to encourage people to sign our letter urging Congress to ban asbestos, while also raising money for his ride in the Pan-Mass Challenge.
So who is Doug Haslam? And what does his ride have to do with BAN! and the larger fight against cancer? Doug sat down with us to explain in the videos above.
While many people are familiar with the word “asbestos,” many are still unaware of its direct link to various forms of cancer, such as mesothelioma. In the end, the goal of this partnership was to fight the cause AND support finding a cure for cancer. So what were the results of this initiative?
The BAN! team would like to thank Doug for all of his help and support throughout this partnership. Best wishes in the rest of your training and your ride in the Pan-Mass Challenge!
Just because our promotion ended doesn’t mean you can’t still make a difference with BAN! and the fight against cancer. Sign our letter to Congress on our homepage, share your story on our BAN! wall and spread the word!
