You Can Support the Cause


By Phil Harwood

According to the American Cancer Society, there will be an estimated 1,958,310 new cancer cases and 609,820 cancer deaths in 2023 in the U.S. Among women, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer, aside from skin cancers, accounting for about 30% of all new female cancers each year. Women have a 1 in 8 chance of developing breast cancer. About 43,700 women will die from breast cancer in 2023 in the U.S. 

What can you do to support the cause?

Screening and increased awareness has made a significant impact in recent decades. Since 1989, breast cancer deaths have been steadily decreasing. But the decline has slowed and there is much more work to be done. 

Hot Pink De-Icer

When Hot Pink Deicer owners Troy and Linda Clogg learned about the devastating financial effects that a breast cancer diagnosis was having on members of their community, they found a way to help. Troy’s experience with snow removal sparked the idea. 

Knowing that thousands of tons of bagged deicer gets used each winter in Michigan, the founders of Hot Pink Deicer saw a way to both improve an everyday product and give it more purpose. Hot Pink Deicer is safer, more effective, and less expensive than comparable products, and a portion of the proceeds directly benefits families in need. 

Since 2010, Hot Pink Deicer has offered financial gifts to a growing list of families. Each year, more local snow contractors, retail stores, and individuals embrace this ideal and become Hot Pink Heroes by choosing Hot Pink Deicer.

Snowfighters Institute Event Sponsor

Next month, June 27-28, Hot Pink De-Icer is hosting Snowfighters Institute’s OPS Management 2-day training event just north of Detroit, Michigan. Attendees will be treated to two full days of education and professional development. On top of that, they will be able to tour Hot Pink De-Icer’s new facility and learn about program specials to integrate Hot Pink into their service platform. 

If you’re serious about snow, Snowfighters Institute is where you need to be. If you care about saving lives and caring for your community, Hot Pink de-icer is what you need on your trucks. 

Registration is now open. 

Now go forth.
