Breast cancer touches millions of lives and is diagnosed every day in our community. Without a cure, 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will continue to be diagnosed with breast cancer – a devastating disease with physical, emotional, psychological and financial pain that can last a lifetime. Without a cure, an estimated 5 million Americans will be diagnosed with breast cancer – and more than 1 million could die – over the next 25 years.
PINK! Together is supporting the fight against breast cancer by going Passionately Pink for the Cure™ on October 25th! By wearing pink and making a donation of $5 or more to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, you’ll be making a difference in the lives of millions. Donations to our team can be made online at http://www.komen.org/.
Passionately Pink for the Cure™ is an exciting new fundraising and education program of Susan G. Komen for the Cure kicking off Oct. 1 during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Companies, organizations, groups and individuals nationwide are picking one day in October and urging their associates and friends to make a nominal donation of $5 or more and to wear the group’s choice of pink apparel that day. The idea is to see pink everywhere, every day in October, reminding everyone of the crucial need to end breast cancer forever.
Please join PINK Together! on October 25, 2007 by wearing pink anything – shirts, shoes, socks, unmentionables – that day. In appreciation for your participation, you will receive a Passionately Pink for the Cure pin from Susan G. Komen for the Cure that you can wear the day of our event and every day after to show your support.
Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Passionately Pink for the Cure, they have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill their promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
