On Jan. 11, Ultramar and its network of service stations in the Atlantic Provinces announced announce a $66,602 donation for the implementation of a unique kinesiology-oncology program tailored to women with or at risk of developing breast cancer. This money was raised through initiatives held in October, during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, when 1¢ per litre of Supreme gasoline and $1 from every Supreme car wash were collected. In addition, customers made their own $1 or $5 contributions charged at the till or left donations in kind in special bins set up for the drive.
