LIVING IN PINK HOSTS TWO MAJOR EVENTS EACH YEAR
An uplifting event aimed at inspiring and providing hope for survivors and those currently battling breast cancer, as well as honoring those who care for patients and those who are tirelessly working to find a cure.
A celebration for adults and children of all ages. This event is helping to raise awareness and raise funds for continued cancer research.
This year marks the 13th Anniversary of The Annual Living in Pink Luncheon. Each year friends and associates gather to remember and celebrate those that have been affected by Breast Cancer. Over the past thirteen years, more than $800,000 has been raised for research. The Luncheon Committee presents an award for outstanding service to a member of the medical profession that has gone above and beyond the call of duty when caring for breast cancer patients, as well as the Noel Soderberg-Evans Award presented by Councilmember Jack Evans.
Living in Pink’s Foundress, Michele Conley, had a dream to organize a race to promote breast cancer awareness and raise money to support medical research in the hopes of one day finding a cure for this devastating disease. Sadly, she did not live to see this dream fulfilled, but Michele’s “running group”, an amazing group of women from many different walks of life, took her idea and ran with it. Thus, the Running in Pink 5K was born in 2015. It has proved to be not only an event to promote awareness, but a chance to celebrate life and challenge ourselves to be fit and healthy.
