WASHINGTON, May 3, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- PROSHREDŽ Security (PROSHREDŽ) will be celebrating the sixth anniversary

for their annual nationwide "Shred Cancer" event on Saturday June 1, 2019 in partnership with The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR). Community members are invited to bring their personal information to be securely shred while raising funds for cancer research.

The event will be held throughout the country at 28 PROSHREDŽ locations. Event times will vary by location. To view event locations and timings, visit https://www.proshred.com/shred-events/

Individuals may bring boxes of documents or multi-media to one of PROSHREDŽ's on-site shredding trucks to safely and securely dispose of unwanted personal information. The event is free to attend and a suggested donation of $5 per box will go directly towards funding AICR's cancer research and education programs. Several locations will host additional events and raffles.  

"Recently AICR launched our "Blueprint to Beat Cancer," a comprehensive analysis of the research on lifestyle factors and cancer prevention. It is the most reliable cancer prevention advice currently available and shows that following AICR's 10 recommendations and other health-related choices can prevent nearly half of all cancer diagnoses," said AICR Senior Vice President, Development, Mary Beth Healy.  "AICR"s partnership with the PROSHREDŽ community played a vital role in our most recent report and continues to make a significant impact on the health of millions of Americans."

Jeffrey Hasham, Chief Executive Officer of PROSHREDŽ, commented, "Every year we see AICR expand their research on cancer prevention and we are extremely happy to contribute to the cause. This year we are planning on celebrating our 6th anniversary in hope to continue to raise awareness and funds for the work AICR conducts. We hope to see everyone on Saturday June 1, 2019 at our Nationwide Shred Cancer events. Together we can Shred Cancer."

Started in 2014 on National Cancer Survivors' Day, PROSHREDŽ has contributed over $176,904.35 to cancer research. This year AICR and PROSHREDŽ have set a goal to raise $50,000.
