Higher Ethanol Blends Fuel the Cure in Nebraska

Cindy Zimmerman

It’s October so that means many fuel retailers in Nebraska are turning pink to raise money for cancer research and educate drivers about higher ethanol blends.

The Nebraska Corn Board, Nebraska Ethanol Board, and Renewable Fuels Nebraska sponsor Fuel the Cure in conjunction with retail stations each October as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Nearly 50 Nebraska gas stations are donating 3 cents for every gallon of higher ethanol blends (E15-E85) sold this month to support work at the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center in Omaha.

Since 2018, Nebraska’s Fuel the Cure campaigns have raised nearly $30,000 for cancer research. Drivers will be able to identify which retailers are supporting this important cause by looking for pink signage at the pump, on the windows and at the counter.
