Hu-Friedy and the Breast Cancer Network of Strength (formerly Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization™), a Chicago-based national nonprofit organization with the mission to ensure, through information, empowerment and peer support, that no one faces breast cancer alone, formed a special bond in the fall of 2006 when Hu-Friedy created a special periodontal promotion, "Inspired by You", focused directly toward dental professionals.
In 2008 Hu-Friedy was honored among other corporations with the Network of Strength’s Team Achievement Award.
Hu-Friedy was recognized for recruiting corporate teams in multiple markets across the country. Hu-Friedy alone raised over $20,000 with 176 team members participating in six total markets - Atlanta, Chicago, New Haven, Sacramento, San Diego, Washington DC.
In addition to the new Pink Ribbon CUREtte, Hu-Friedy’s #100 Thin Swivel Direct Flow ® ultrasonic insert has been selected as the Network of Strength “Spokes-Instrument” for the ultrasonic product line.
This insert features the unique benefits of 360 o rotation and proudly displays the pink ribbon logo.
