Together with our customers, the people of Delta have increased awareness and raised more than $7.9 million in donations through flights of its signature Pink Plane and the sale of pink lemonade, clothing and accessories for the organization and its work."

Celebrating Our 10 Year Partnership With BCRF

A MESSAGE FROM SANDY AND MYRA

At Delta we’re continuing with several ongoing initiatives that, combined with the support of our millions of customers, have added up to a tremendous amount of support for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Since 2005, Delta employees and customers have raised a total of $7.9 million for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. More importantly, that translates to 31 funded research projects as of October of 2014. And that's just the beginning.

Breast Cancer One

Taking Flight For The Fight

On September 30, 2014, Delta's iconic Pink Plane flew from Atlanta to New York for our annual "Breast Cancer One" charter flight. This event celebrates and honors breast cancer survivors and is our way of kicking off Breast Cancer Awareness Month and another great year of our partnership with BCRF. Each year, the efforts, enthusiasm and generosity of Delta's employees and customers continually bring us one step closer to the cure.

We can all contribute to the fight for the cure. Whether by providing care and support to a loved one affected by breast cancer, or simply by donating to support critical research, every effort plays a part in beating this disease.
