Clinton Tractor joins fight against breast cancer


According to Global Cancer Statistics 2020, for the first time ever, female breast cancer has surpassed lung cancer as the most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide. 

This year, Clinton Tractor is continuing to help the American Cancer Society raise both awareness and money for their breast cancer initiatives through different fundraising measures, including raffling off a Ferris commercial mower, displaying their own custom-made Survivor tractor, and being a part of the Real Men Wear Pink campaign. 

“Being a leader in the community is very important to our company,” says co-owner John Calidonna. “The customers and employees that walk through our doors have become our extended family, and with so many people near and dear to our hearts touched by breast cancer over the last several years, it was a cause we really wanted to get behind.”

Inspired by seeing a Breast Cancer “Survivor“ tractor at a New Holland dealer meeting several years ago, Calidonna had a 1940 Ford 9N model that was found on the side of the road restored into their own Survivor tractor.

The purple tractor has been in numerous parades and Relay for Life events. In conjunction with the Survivor display, Clinton Tractor donates a Ferris commercial mower each year to the American Cancer Society for a raffle.

Calidonna is also a Real Men Wear Pink Ambassador in his community and has his own donation page in which he has pledged to walk three miles every day the month of October to raise money.

The drawing for the Ferris commercial mower will be Oct. 25. To purchase raffle tickets, go to Clinton Tractor on Meadow Street in Clinton.  The link to donate directly to Calidonna’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign is:
