Lyft is partnering with the tgin Foundation for a bigger impact. We have opened rides NATIONWIDE and to include COVID vaccinations. Due to COVID-19, there is a rise of concern for individuals with cancer or a history of cancer.
Rides Save Lives
We have partnered with Lyft to provide affordable and reliable transportation services to individuals going to and from facilities to receive a Covid-19 vaccination, or going for a breast health appointment at the same time.
The new ride program is open to eligible persons, and women can combine their vaccine appointment and go to a breast health appointment at the same time.
Appointments are required, so everyone must contact the location to arrange an appointment. To find a COVID-19 location in your area, go to https://www.vaccines.gov/
Lyft awarded the grant in 2020 to the tgin Foundation to aid the Foundation’s mission to support African American women undergoing treatment for breast cancer, highlight the impact of health disparities on survivor outcomes, and stress the importance of early detection for women under the age of 40.
