For 5 years now, Federico has participated in The American Cancer Society’s walk, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. The 5k walk helps raise funds to assist in the cost of breast cancer research; provide free, comprehensive information and support to those touched by breast cancer. This year Federico will be walking under the name #teamanne2015, and we will also be launching limited edition pink Federico hoodies to show our support for the walk. $5.00 of every hoodie sold will go to the American Cancer Society.
Cancer has always been a cause that hits close to home for the Federico family. Anne Federico, Gary’s wife and mother of Jeremy, Joseph, and Adam, passed away from breast cancer in 2005. Her passing was a huge loss to the family and in her honor they’ve strived to do what they can to support other families affected by cancer. On top of that, Jeremy Federico was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2013 and though he is in remission right now, it’s something that he will constantly live with.
Even before getting involved with Making Strides, Federico Beauty Institute was been assisting those affected by cancer. Anne founded the Federico Wig Bank program all the way back in 1982. Using money raised by our Casual-for-a-Cause days along with donations from industry vendors and the American Cancer Society, Federico has provided free wigs and styling services to people going through treatment and needing a bit of a self-esteem boost.
