FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - South Florida’s major league soccer team gave a major show of support during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Inter Miami CF partnered on Tuesday with AutoNation at DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale to fill more than 2,000 comfort bags for cancer patients at treatment centers across the nation.

Inside the bags were handwritten messages of hope written by AutoNation associates for people battling the disease.

“What a great day. AutoNation, Inter Miami to stuff bags for cancer patients across America,” said AutoNation Executive Vice President Marc Cannon. “I’m proud to tell you that across America we stuffed 15,000 bags, and right here we did 2,500 that are going to cancer patients … It’s a great day.”

7News cameras captured a pink pickup truck with the DRV PNK logo, its cargo bed filled with the comfort bags.

Two hundred and fifty of the bags were delivered to patients at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital and Memorial Regional Hospital.
