• Chevy contributes $10 for each test drive on Oct. 6.
  • Contributions benefit the American Cancer Society.
  • All Chevrolet models included in promotion.

This Saturday, new car shoppers can help out a worthy cause while sampling the latest vehicles from Chevrolet. As part of the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer program, Chevy will donate $10 for each test drive taken on Oct. 6 toward research and services to fight breast cancer.

All Chevrolet models--the updated Traverse crossover, the plug-in electric Volt and even the iconic Corvette sports car--are included in the program. This gives shoppers interested in checking out the newest 2013 models or scoring a great deal on an outgoing 2012 model a chance to test drive the vehicle of their choice and help out in the fundraising effort, too.

Chevy's contribution of up to $130,000 will support the Society's cancer research and education and its support for individuals and families affected by the disease. Last year, Chevrolet's promotion helped the American Cancer Society to raise over $1 million in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer program.

Chevrolet's vice president for sales and service, Don Johnson, says the promotion is a win-win for consumers.

"By visiting a Chevrolet dealer on Oct. 6, consumers can see and experience for themselves why we sold a record number of cars, trucks and crossovers last year, and help the American Cancer Society fight for more birthdays," said Johnson.

The American Cancer Society, founded by a group of physicians nearly 100 years ago, is a nationwide organization with more than 900 local offices and a presence in more than 5,100 communities. Its mission is to prevent cancer, save lives and diminish suffering through research, education, advocacy and service.

If you've been itching to drive a new Camaro, visit your local Chevy dealer this Saturday. You'll get some time behind the wheel, and your drive will help to fight breast cancer. Or, if you'll already be out shopping for a new car this weekend, be sure to visit a Chevrolet dealer along with others on your test drive list. You might find your next new car. If not, at least you'll know your test drive helped make a difference. Just be sure to bring your valid driver's license.

What it means to you: Test drive a new Chevrolet this Saturday, Oct. 6. Not only will you get to experience the vehicle, but you'll also help the American Cancer Society in its fight against breast cancer.
