During the Month of October, Collinsville Auto Repair in Canton, CT and hundreds of Independent Auto Repair Shops across the US are raising funds for a breast cancer vaccine as part of the Brakes for Breast fundraiser.
As part of the fundraiser, Collinsville Auto Repair is giving away FREE (quality) brake pads to non-commercial vehicles. The customer simply pays the labor and any other ancillary parts necessary to complete the brake job and Collinsville Auto Repair will then donate 10% of the brake job directly to Dr. Vincent Tuohy & the Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine Research Fund.
100% of what we donate goes directly to research! Celebrating our 10th year and $1,000,000.00!

This Brakes For Breasts fundraiser is different from any other breast cancer fundraising campaigns:
- laboratory animals in actually preventing breast cancer. Think about Polio, eradicated because of a vaccine, a distant memory for most generations. This is the same principle!
- Dr. Tuohy and his team are rounding the corner and are hoping to start Phase 1 trials in early 2021.
- 100% of the proceeds from the ‘Brakes for Breasts’ fundraiser goes directly to the Cleveland Clinic for research on the Breast Cancer Vaccine.
- These are just “mom & pop” shops across the country, independent business owners that have joined hands for a great cause.
