For each mile driven, Bergstrom Automotive will donate $1 to breast cancer research at the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center. No advance registration is necessary.

Complimentary food and refreshments will be available and participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt. A raffle will also be held.
In the past three years, Bergstrom Drive for a Cure raised more than $240,000 for breast cancer research at MCW.
The event is held in memory of Melodie Wilson Oldenburg, a longtime television news anchor and breast cancer advocate who died from breast cancer in 2009 at age 59. Wilson was a co-founder of the MCW Cancer Center Board, and she served on the MCW Board of Trustees with John Bergstrom, Chairman and CEO of Bergstrom Corporation.
