My Fine Wheels
After multiple family members and a co-worker’s wife were diagnosed with colon cancer, Anthony Rubio decided to demonstrate his commitment to raising money and awareness for colon cancer in a unique way. Channeling his passion for cars, he organized a successful car and motorcycle show, entitled My Fine Wheels, to benefit the Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA).
Held at Harley Davidson in Mesa, Arizona on November 17, 2012, My Fine Wheels was a great success. Complete with a wide variety of cars and motorcycles, the event was a fun time for all. With the help of Shelia Castro, CCA Voices of Central Arizona Outreach Coordinator, Rubio was able to set up a table at the show dedicated to colon cancer awareness.
Along with educating attendees about colon cancer and the CCA’s services and resources, My Fine Wheels raised more than $1,300! Thanks to Anthony and Shelia for their hard work and dedication!
