American Airlines, in collaboration with Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) and Emmy, Grammy and Golden Globe-nominated actress, singer and songwriter Mandy Moore, is launching its annual campaign to raise funds for innovative and life-saving cancer research.
Now through Sept. 30, customers will receive 25 bonus American Airlines AAdvantage® miles for every dollar they donate of $25 or more to Stand Up To Cancer.
Additionally, anyone who uses their American Airlines AAdvantage Mastercard® credit card to contribute between $25 and $10,000, will receive 50 bonus AAdvantage miles per dollar until we reach $1 million donations.
“The outpouring of support from our generous team members and customers has been remarkable in our six-year partnership with Stand Up To Cancer,” said American Airlines Chief Communications Officer Ron DeFeo. “That’s a testament to how passionate we are about Stand Up’s mission to save lives by funding research that has led to groundbreaking scientific breakthroughs in the fight against cancer. It’s a disease that has impacted so many of us and our loved ones.”
Since first joining forces in 2016, American has raised more than $11 million to benefit SU2C through fundraising efforts. In 2019, American debuted a campaign that offered those who donate the chance to honor a loved one by including their name on an Airbus A321 aircraft wrapped in a special SU2C livery.
“This year alone, nearly 2 million people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer,” said Rusty Robertson, Stand Up To Cancer Co-Founder. “Stand Up To Cancer is committed to funding innovative cancer research and dealing with health equity in cancer clinical trials to ensure treatments are accessible and beneficial to all patients. We are immensely grateful to American Airlines and their customers for their longstanding support and to Mandy Moore for her participation in this campaign. Together, we can and will end this terrible disease.”
SU2C brings together the best and the brightest in the cancer community to help new therapies move from the laboratory to the patient quickly. By galvanizing the entertainment community, SU2C creates awareness and educates the public on cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment and raises funds to support these efforts.
“I have supported Stand Up To Cancer since its inception and it has been truly amazing to see scientists, patients, actors, musicians and athletes all come together for one common cause — the fight against cancer,” said Mandy Moore. “To do this in partnership with them and American Airlines, a company so close to my heart, is truly a full circle moment. For many, cancer is a part of life’s journey, and through this campaign, I hope we can raise awareness for Stand Up To Cancer’s groundbreaking cancer research programs, while inspiring cancer survivors, patients and those caring for a loved one facing the disease.”
