All of the money raised by MileOne will go towards fundraising for all cancers, and will stay in each of our local communities to fund the American Cancer Society's Road to Recovery program that offers cancer patients rides to and from treatment in Hampton Roads and Baltimore. We will also be funding research grants being completed at local universities and hospital systems as well as local housing in Baltimore.

Road to Recovery
In 2018, MileOne began funding supplemental transportation as part of the American Cancer Society's Road to Recovery program in Norfolk, VA and Baltimore, MD. This program funds rides to cancer patients going to and from treatment. In 2019, MileOne provided 7,999 rides to 1,554 people. We are continuing to fund this program in 2020, providing almost $275,000 in funding in our two markets. 

This year, our funds will go towards ensuring that these vehicles are safe for cancer patients to ride in. We will be providing COVID-friendly items such as plexi glass retainer walls, gloves, masks, hand sanitizer and more.  

If you know of individuals who could benefit from this program, or are interested in volunteering as a driver, have them contact Road to Recovery at 1-800-227-2345. 

Lodging for Cancer Patients
Hope Lodge is a housing facility in downtown Baltimore that provides free temporary housing for those undergoing cancer treatments who live far from their treatment. Funds raised this year will go towards an expansion and massive update of the Hope Lodge facility. 

Local Research
MileOne Autogroup is proud to support local cancer patients through funding research conducted in our own communities at local hospitals and universities throughout Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Virginia for multiple types of cancers and tumors. This year's local research grants include research in bladder, brain, breast, cervical, colon, esophageal, lung, pancreatic, pediatric, prostate cancer and more. 
 

Fundraising Website 

The fundraising website will be the same site that we used last year: https://charity.gofundme.com/mileone4acs

This site is a dedicated fundraising site for MileOne stores where donations can be made directly online to the store page. All of your store fundraising efforts will also be shown on this site once the money is received by ACS. If there are any problems with your team page (the goal isn't correct, you can't find it, etc.) please contact Melissa Tully at x10428.

MileOne ACS Cup

This is the 3rd year we will present the MileOne ACS Cup to the store that meets the following criteria in each division:
  • Hit their fundraising goal
  • At least 25% of their employees purchased ACS shirts
  • More than half of their employees participated in fundraising events
  • Hosted two fundraising "events" at their store
  • The champion utilized resources available to them 
In the event of a tie, the store that exceeds their fundraising goal by the greatest percentage will be declared the winner. 

The presentation of the cup will be shared in the company newsletter, media outlets and social media through MileOne and the American Cancer Society.
