DFAC made all of it's sponsored stops, dealership obligations, honored it's commitments, made every stop on the Official 2006 DFAC Published Route and one extra - - on time! The cumulative total for donations collected has not yet been tallied but are estimated at approximately $25,000.
Divas For A Cure – “DFAC” (Jan Emanuel, Aj Jemison, and Michael Proctor) along with Harry Howard, Chase Vehicle Driver and another rider (Linden Bob, Pick-up Rider) keep to the mission (“Promoting Breast Cancer Awareness & Raising Funds for Breast Cancer Research”).
We were interviewed by more than 6 television networks, several different newspapers, and several radio stations and also filmed three short documentaries with independent video producers at and/or near the NBR in Florida. We also recorded a Breast Cancer Awareness Podcast with TrimCom & Swedish American Medical Foundation, soon to be released to the internet.
The ride was long (8,593 miles) and hot (temperatures ranging from 90 -120 degrees, rain, thunder and lightening storms, and even hail).
