FINDLAY, Ohio, Aug. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - The Cooper Tire & Rubber Company (NYSE: CTB) Canadian Take the Money & Ride Event benefits both consumers and Canadian youths this fall, as the company has teamed up with Hockey Education Reaching Out Society (HEROS) as a featured partner with a multiyear sponsorship agreement. HEROS is a registered Canadian charitable organization committed to empowering children through ice hockey, using the game as a catalyst to teach youth the importance of education, self-esteem and life skills training.
Since 1999, HEROS has worked with more than 3,200 children to make education enjoyable and help dreams become a reality. Focusing on boys and girls of diverse economic backgrounds throughout Canada, the program provides a positive environment where every child is a HERO. As participants are hand-picked for the program by their teachers, HEROS works closely with schools in Vancouver, Sunshine Coast, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto and Montreal.
"HEROS is an incredible organization, teaching children to value education and hard work – two pillars we value at Cooper Tire," said Chris Ostrander, Cooper Tire President of North America Tire Operations. "For every consumer that donates a portion of their reward from the Take the Money & Ride Event, Cooper Tire will also make a matching donation."
