Sports hero Craig Krenzel is helping J D Equipment raise money for the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research.
Krenzel was at J D Equipment on Northpointe Drive May 23rd to promote the sales of John Deere lawn mowers. A portion of each mower sold during 2012 will be donated to the Stefanie Spielman Fund. In 2011 they raised $26,000, this year they hope to raise more than $30,000.
"All you have to do is come out and buy a tractor and you're going to really be helping in the long-term hopefully save a number of lives," said Krenzel.
"I know the guys at J D jumped at the opportunity to be a part of the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer and to use their ability within the community and their equipment and portions of their proceeds to give directly to the Stefanie Spielman to continue to help fund these life-saving drugs and techniques and treatments," added Krenzel.
Krenzel considers it an honor and a privilege to to have known Stefanie and will continue to honor her memory as best he can.
"I've been inspired by such an incredible person, to be a part of a cause that today has raised over $10 million for cancer research and the life-saving drugs and treatments it's been an honor and a blessing personally and I know that the folks at J D Equipment feel the same."
At this time J D Equipment has raised almost $14,000 for the fund. The final check will be presented to Chris Spielman by the owners of J D Equipment during the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer in February. You can watch the donation grow throughout the year on jdequipment.com
