Miami Marlins and AutoNation DRV PNK Collaborate to Bring Hope to Those Battling Cancer

Marlins players spent time with children undergoing treatment at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital.

AutoNation has partnered with the Miami Marlins to provide Totes for Hope comfort bags to children undergoing treatment at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. As part of the visit, the Marlins presented a check for $37,000 to support AutoNation’s year-round Drive Pink (DRV PNK) campaign, which aims to end cancer.

Delivering the specially designed Totes for Hope filled with comfort items were Richard Lennox, the Chief Marketing Officer of AutoNation, Luis Arraez, the Miami Marlins All-Star, Charles Johnson, the 1997 World Series Champion and former Miami Marlins player, and David Oxfeld, the Miami Marlins Chief Commercial Officer.

AutoNation recently held its annual DRV PNK Across America Day, bringing associates nationwide. During the event, they assembled thousands of Totes for Hope, now being delivered to cancer treatment facilities in their respective communities.

AutoNation Associates participate in annual charitable initiatives to raise cancer awareness and support the fight against the disease. Along with customers and community partners, the Associates have collectively contributed to AutoNation’s efforts to raise and donate over $35 million towards the cause since 2013. The funds collected are distributed to various facilities and organizations across the U.S. to support cancer research, treatment, and services in the areas where they are most needed.
