AUSTIN, TX – 9/21/16 – Testicular Cancer Foundation is pleased to announce that it has joined RideAustin’s “Round Up” charity program. RideAustin, a rapidly expanding ridesharing service in Austin, allows customers to round up their fare in support of 23 different local charities while utilizing the service.

“TCF could not be more thrilled to partner with an organization like RideAustin. As we innovate in the testicular cancer world, RideAustin is doing the same for the local community,” said Testicular Cancer Foundation CEO, Kenny Kane. “Under TCF’s 100% model, all of the funds will go directly to our programs and services.”

RideAustin continues to uphold its commitment to the Austin community by providing affordable rides and charitable giving opportunities through the apps “Round Up” feature. Last week RideAustin lowered its prices to the lowest in the market by reducing its commission to 0%. This allows ridesharing to be more accessible to more people without cutting driver take home pay.

“RideAustin is proud to include the Testicular Cancer Foundation in the Round Up feature. Early detection can save lives and part of that is simply improving awareness. With over 70,000 users we are happy to help TCF increase exposure of the great work it is doing to improve the lives of those who have been affected by testicular cancer,” said Joe Deshotel, Director of Community Engagement for RideAustin.
