Kumho Tire U.S.A. Inc. is supporting Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta as the sponsor of the survivor area during the 2017 Race for the Cure.

Nearly 10,000 people are expected to participate in the Atlanta event on June 24, 2017.

Kumho’s involvement in breast cancer causes began in 2012 in Korea, where the tire maker participated in a fundraising campaign to raise breast cancer awareness, promoted the importance of regular self-exams and early detection methods along with the Korea Breast Cancer Foundation (KBCF). Kumho is continuing its work now that it has established its U.S. headquarters in Atlanta.

“Kumho Tire is proud to support an organization that consistently strives to combat breast cancer, educate families and empower survivors,” says Harry Choi, CEO of Kumho Tire USA.

During the event, Kumho will sponsor the survivor area with a hydrating station, and the company will provide 1,000 gifts to survivors. In the post-race area open to public access, Kumho will provide participants and their supporters an interactive experience that features a photo booth, giveaways and atire display to help educate attendees on the importance of selecting the right tires for your ride.

Onmi United Passes the One Million Mark to Fight Against Breast Cancer

Over the last five years, the Radar tire brand has raised more than $1 million to fight breast cancer. And Omni United (S) Pte. Ltd., owner and distributor of the Radar private brand, plans to continue the fight with the help of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
“Giving back is one of the corporate values upon which we have built Omni United and Radar tires,” says GS Sareen, founder and CEO of Omni United. “It is one of my most cherished corporate values, less about social responsibility and more about running our company responsibly.”

“Our partnership with the BCRF has allowed us and, indirectly, also our customers, to contribute in a meaningful way to fund research towards the prevention and cure of breast cancer, a disease that has touched so many in our communities and among the friends and families of our employees, customers, suppliers and friends. We will continue supporting the BCRF in their relentless endeavor of advancing research towards finding a cure for breast cancer.”

In 2011 Omni launched the “Mobilizing Hope” campaign, a corporate alliance with the BCRF that has included donations for each Radar tire sold and one-off contributions. To date this campaign has contributed more than $1 million, which has funded over 21,000 hours of some of the world’s most promising and innovative research toward preventing and curing breast cancer.

Besides monetary contributions to the BCRF over the last five years, Omni United and Radar tires have sponsored and undertaken numerous initiatives to spread awareness for this cause, including:

* launching a limited edition “pink sidewall” tire, sold through Sears Auto Centers;

* encouraging their customers, tire distributors, dealers and retailers throughout the world to support the Mobilizing Hope campaign by providing them with in store displays, pink ribbons and other awareness materials to distribute among customers;

* displaying the logo of the BCRF on all the racing cars and gear of the Radar tire motorsports teams;

* supporting the BCRF in all international tire fairs and other events in which Omni and Radar tires participate.

“Our corporate partnership with Omni and the team has been rewarding and innovative in bringing a predominately female cause into a mostly male environment, the world of tires,” says Myra Biblowit, BCRF president. “We are delighted to reach this 5-year milestone and grateful for the ongoing support from Omni, which has helped us fund some critical research.”

This year Radar’s brand ambassador, LPGA golfer Jodi Ewart Shadoff, will further increase awareness of this cause and of the work of the BCRF by wearing pink gear and using a specially designed pink golf club bag in all the October tournaments in which she is due to participate, including the Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship in Taipei from Oct. 6-9; the LPGA Keb Hana Bank Championship in Incheon, South Korea, from Oct. 13-16; and the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur from Oct. 27-30.

Radar is the flagship brand of Singapore-based Omni United, which does business in the United States as Omni United USA. All Radar tires have distinct labeling identifying the product as supportive of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This includes all of Radar’s new products: the Dimax R8+, Dimax AS 8, Renegade A/T 5 and Renegade R7 M/T.

Michelin Golf Outing Sets Fundraising Record

{EA8B18E1-96B4-41C0-BBAA-9AFD8FFC4CA6}76829311_10

Michelin North America Inc. says it raised a record $682,000 from its annual charity golf tournament. The event, held every October at golf courses in the Greenville, S.C., area, receives generous support from Michelin suppliers and business partners throughout the world.

For Michelin, the annual golf tournament in Greenville has become the company’s most successful one-day philanthropic fundraising event.

This year’s outing marked the 26th time Michelin has hosted the charity golf tournament. Since 1989, Michelin’s suppliers have contributed nearly $4 million. Money collected from this year’s event will go to eight charities serving South Carolina and other communities where the tire maker has manufacturing operations.

“The generosity of our suppliers this year was remarkable,” says Leesa Owens, director of community relations for Michelin North America. “We thought last year’s total was tremendous, and now we have collected donations for these charities that exceed 2014 by 27%. We are deeply grateful for their support of our communities.

“The organizations that will benefit from this generosity have a meaningful and important impact on their local communities. Many lives will be touched by these contributions from our valued suppliers.”

The eight charities from this year’s list of beneficiaries include:

Homes for Hope serves area communities by developing and constructing energy-efficient, affordable housing, while also helping rebuild the lives of people who are trying to overcome addictions by providing on-site job training and mentoring.

The Center for Community Services works to improve the lives of children and their families, serving the Golden Strip area and Southern Greenville County.

Military Child Education focuses on finding and ensuring quality education opportunities for military children affected by mobility, family separation and transition.

PRIDE stands for the Parents’ Resource Institute for Drug Education in the Tuscaloosa, Ala., community. PRIDE of Tuscaloosa and Prevention Services is dedicated to providing proven and effective drug prevention education programs to the parents and youth in the city.

National Organizations for Youth Safety has a mission to promote youth empowerment and leadership and build partnerships that will save lives, prevent injuries, and promote safe and healthy lifestyles among all youth.

Palmetto Conservation Foundation is a Columbia-based, nonprofit organization dedicated to natural and cultural resource protection in South Carolina.

Safe Harbor is a private, 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence in the upstate of South Carolina. Safe Harbor breaks the cycle of domestic violence by prevention through education, intervention through safe shelter and transformation through support.

The Walker Foundation at the SC School for the Deaf and the Blind’s mission is to secure resources that will enable SCSDB to achieve its mission and goals.

“We are very pleased to host the Michelin Charity Golf Tournament, which, thanks to our incredibly generous supplier partners, has such a meaningful and very positive impact on our eight selected charities,” says Norman King, vice president of purchasing for Michelin North America. “This event is an outstanding example of how we, in partnership with our suppliers and selected charities, can work together in creating a better way forward in the communities where we operate.”
