Tempur-Pedic® Partners with Retailers to Raise Donations for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network
— by Tempur-Pedic on Oct 25, 2019
For 10 years, we’ve partnered with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) to generate donations for Pancreatic Cancer research through an initiative called the Rest Test. This event invites shoppers to visit a retail store to try out a Tempur-Pedic mattress and take a “Rest Test.” For every test completed, Tempur-Pedic® donates $10 to PanCAN.
Overall, nearly 4,000 retailers across the country participated in this year’s event — helping to raise more than $184,000 for PanCAN and their research into this devastating disease.
"Tempur Sealy is honored to support PanCAN through our annual Rest Test and we're particularly proud that so many retail locations supported this year's effort," said Jim O'Donnell, Tempur Sealy VP of Sales Development. "With nearly 4,000 locations participating this year, we were able to generate our largest Rest Test donation to PanCAN ever: $184,600. Thank you to everyone who took part in this year's Rest Test. Together, we are making a difference in fighting the world's toughest cancer."
Pancreatic cancer, which claims the lives of 90% of its victims within five years*, touches the hearts of many in the Tempur-Pedic family. The Rest Test will remain an important initiative until a cure can be found, and we’re proud to support this meaningful cause year after year.
