March of Dimes Canada is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Pennzoil
TORONTO, Jan. 30, 2013, 2013 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) --
Pennzoil has partnered with March of
Dimes Canada, a charity that provides programs and services to
Canadians living with disabilities. Pennzoil has donated $65,000 to
March of Dimes in the form of a retro-fitted vehicle for people living
with disabilities so that these former drivers can reclaim their
freedom and love of driving.
"We are so excited to welcome Pennzoil to the March of Dimes family,"
says Mary Lynne Stewart, Director of Fund Development and
Communications for March of Dimes Canada. "Their support will allow us
to offer our essential programs and services to even more Canadian
families living with disabilities."
Pennzoil will be the presenting sponsor for Rock for Dimes fundraisers
in 2013 to celebrate the collective passion Pennzoil and so many others
have for the love of cars and the freedom that people derive from their
"Freedom is a sentiment closely associated with the ability to drive an
automobile. Yet, this freedom can be taken away if one has disabilities
and cannot drive a standard automobile. Pennzoil supports organizations
like March of Dimes Canada, which are dedicated to helping people with
disabilities regain mobility and freedom," says Bree Sandlin, Pennzoil
Global Brand Manager.
Pennzoil presents Rock for Dimes in a corporate battle of the bands held
to benefit March of Dimes Canada's programs and services for children
and adults with disabilities. Amateur musicians compete in this
friendly fundraiser for the title of their city's best corporate band.

What began as an event in Toronto, Ontario has since expanded to become
March of Dimes' flagship national fundraiser and is now held in
communities coast to coast. Since its inception, Rock for Dimes has
raised over $750,000 to support March of Dimes' Conductive Education(R)
and Stroke Recovery Canada(R) programs.
