My story looks a little different than most Pledge the Pink Flockstars. Sure, I’m a huge supporter of everything PINK, but my reasons revolve around BLUE and GRAY! Those are the color ribbons that represent my parents…blue for Prostate cancer, gray for Brain cancer. It’s the “C” word that drives me to walk the 30 miles for Pledge the Pink.
Cancer took both of my parents in their 60s, just 5 years apart. They had so much life to live, so many plans, and cancer cut that short. No, it wasn’t the “pink ribbon” kind of cancer, but it was cancer all the same.
Pledge the Pink Foundation is set up to help provide mammograms for women who otherwise couldn’t afford them. Each year, since 2011, a sea of pink descends on the Low Country of South Carolina to celebrate the survivors, remember the lost, and circle around each other to fight for those who can’t. The spirit is infectious, the friends made are lifelong and the cause….well it’s the why!
For 2021, we have a lofty goal of $1,000,000. I have a personal goal of $1000 and will do what I can throughout this year to raise at least that amount.
This is where you come in. Think of the people you personally know who have been effected by not only breast cancer, but any form of cancer. I would venture to say that you know at least one person. Now, what if you could have done something to help them be diagnosed sooner to better their chances of fighting it. Well, here is your chance. $1 or $100…it all adds up to fight the fight. To show how much this means to me, I’m personally donating $10 a week to the cause. Can you do without that latte for one day a week? If so, there’s about $5 that could help the person beside you. I appreciate your help, and so does that person next to you.
