“Mazda’s donation to St. Jude helps them achieve their mission of reducing the cancer rate among children and allows them toCONTINUE their treatment without ever giving a patient’s family a bill,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO. “However, this donation would never have been possible without the donations being directed by our customers throughout the month of December during the Mazda Drive for Good event. So, while this donation comes from Mazda Drive for Good, it is really a directRESULT of our customers wanting to give to St. Jude.”
