Breast cancer is now the most common cancer worldwide, with an estimated 2.3 million cases each year, affecting women and men. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, Scooter’s Coffee is again offering its popular Courage Cookie, and will donate a portion of the proceeds to The Pink Agenda to help fund lifesaving breast cancer research.

Scooter’s Coffee has partnered with The Pink Agenda since 2020. The nonprofit is committed to raising money for breast cancer research and care. Through Oct. 31, Scooter’s Coffee customers can support this critical research by purchasing the customer-favorite Courage Cookie and/or by adding a donation to their order—the donations and 20% of the cookie sales directly support breast cancer research.

Baked from scratch in the kitchens of Scooter’s Coffee affiliated company, Harvest Roasting, the delicious Courage Cookie is a sugar cookie with savory cream cheese frosting and pink sprinkles—pink is the color that symbolizes breast cancer awareness. The cookies were created specifically to raise funds for research and awareness.

“Scooter’s Coffee is proud to once again partner with The Pink Agenda to join in the fight against breast cancer. Courage is an important core value at our company, and we extend heartfelt compassion to those battling breast cancer as they show incredible courage every day,” said Bill Black, Chief Community Officer at Scooter’s Coffee, LLC. “We love how our valued customers get behind this important cause, and we thank our franchisees and employees for making it happen. To The Pink Agenda – thank you – for your dedication and incredible work to end this disease.”

Due to significant progress in breast cancer research, there are more than 4 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. The Pink Agenda funds four major research projects through its strategic partnership with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). These projects aim to improve survivorship and treatment approaches; eliminate disparities in access to care in ethnically diverse communities; investigate risk factors to inform preventative strategies; and understand genetic risks.

“We deeply appreciate the Scooter’s Coffee commitment to this critical cause, and the heart-warming generosity of its customers, franchise owners, and employees,” said Serra Eken, Managing Director at The Pink Agenda. “With the support of Scooter’s Coffee, The Pink Agenda can continue funding groundbreaking research and care needed to save lives while raising awareness. We continue to strive to engage people today to find tomorrow’s cure.” 

Since 2020, Scooter’s Coffee has donated nearly $400,000 to The Pink Agenda and sold more than 666,000 Courage Cookies across its 29-state footprint.
