Regis Foundation Gives $400,000 to Mayo Clinic

Regis Foundation Gives $400,000 to Mayo Clinic Regis Corporation, with brands including Supercuts, SmartStyle, MasterCuts and Regis Salons, has supported breast cancer research for more than 20 years.

This past October, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Regis Corporation salons, stylists, guests and business partners came together during the company’s annual Clip for the Cure campaign to raise money for breast cancer research. The campaign’s highlight was a daylong haircutting event held on Saturday, October 19, 2013. Stylists at over 7,000 corporate salons throughout the country gave more than 225,000 haircuts to guests, with a portion of those proceeds going to The Regis Foundation for Breast Cancer Research. In addition, guests helped raise funds by purchasing limited-edition “pink” products and donating to the cause.

After this year’s Clip for the Cure campaign, The Regis Foundation for Breast Cancer Research donated $400,000 to Mayo Clinic to fight this devastating disease. “Regis has a history of partnering with Mayo Clinic and we proudly support their groundbreaking work in breast cancer research,” said Dan Hanrahan, CEO and president of Regis Corporation. “Breast cancer research is an important cause for our company because the disease touches the lives of many of our guests, stylists, team members as well as our friends and families.”

This year’s Regis Foundation donation supports Matthew Goetz, M.D., a Mayo Clinic oncologist who is working with the National Cancer Institute to develop endoxifen, a drug to treat women with breast cancer that is resistant to standard hormonal based therapies. "I am so grateful for Regis’ support,” Goetz says. “My colleagues and I are committed to innovative new work like this because our patients deserve the best therapies when facing a life threatening disease such as breast cancer.”

Regis Corporation has supported breast cancer research since 1990, raising more than $10 million for its foundation, which funds breast cancer research at Mayo Clinic, the University of Minnesota’s Masonic Cancer Center and other nationally recognized organizations. Over 30 Regis Corporation salon brands participated in the 2013 Clip for the Cure campaign including Supercuts, SmartStyle, MasterCuts and Regis Salons.For more information, visit ClipForTheCure.org.
