Go PINK Locally! (NC Triangle)

The following email was received from a friend showing NC Triangle Area GO PINK events…

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we can celebrate that we have come a long way in our fight against this disease.  When Susan G. Komen for the Cure started more than 30 years ago, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer confined to the breast was just 74 percent. Today, that survival rate is 98 percent.

In spite of this success, there is still tremendous work to be done. Please join Komen NC Triangle in our promise to end breast cancer forever by participating in some exciting upcoming events. Whether you do one or do them all, you, your friends and your family can have a great time while supporting the fight against breast cancer.

I look forward to seeing you at one or all of these events!

This fun, hands-on experience features computer kiosks full of information on the breast cancer movement, life-saving recommendations about breast self awareness, inspirational videos, and a “graffiti wall” for sharing memories or pledging support for the cause.

While you’re at the fair on be sure to check out the King Action Sports Stunt Show as they perform on the largest PINK ramp park in the U.S. Survivors, the Saturday, 5pm show is dedicated to you so bring your friends, and your family out to this amazing high energy performance.
