This year, I will walk my 360th mile (not including the many, many more while training) in support of the fight to end breast cancer. And I will keep on walking until pink ribbons are only used to decorate little girls’ hair, and not as a symbol of this terrible disease.
While this fight remains a challenge, I am excited about the strides being made that will lead ultimately to eradication. Trials have begun using a vaccine to treat cancer! I can’t tell you how thrilling this is–we are seeing real hope for a cure on the horizon!
This year’s 3 day 30 mile walk will be in the beautiful low country of South Carolina, on Hunting Island, Habersham Island, and Fripp Island.
Fancy the Flamingo, our mascot, turns 10 years old this year! Again this year, we will cover Fripp Island with flocks of flamingos, each representing $100 raised. Last year we set the World Record for the largest flamboyance of lawn flamingos, and we hope to exceed that in 2020. Moreover, my team has committed to leading the charge to reach an event record of $1 million raised!
Pledge the Pink is an all-volunteer organization that raises money for breast cancer research, as well as funding mammograms, biopsies, treatment, as well as transportation assistance, childcare/eldercare during appointments, home care, and other needed support for women who are in the fight.
EVERY PENNY RAISED goes straight to 501 (c)(3) nonprofits or to providing special grants. My team has chosen the Breast Cancer Research Foundation as our nonprofit, and 75% of the funds I raise will go there, with the remainder to funding mammograms and special grants.
