This has been a great year for us, and as we approach Beast Cancer Awareness month, we want to share some of our successes with the Living in Pink Community and thank you for your support. The Living in Pink Luncheon and The Running in Pink 5K were both a smashing success. Not only did everyone enjoy themselves as you can see by the smiling faces, but with your help, we were were able to raise over $150,000 over the past two years.
We are proud to partner with Breast Care for Washington with a contribution of $50,000 this year. These funds help to enable the lifesaving services that they are providing to underserved women in The District.

An Announcement from Your Friends at Living in Pink
There have been many changes and developments in Breast Cancer treatment over the past fifteen years including more effective treatments, 3D imaging for more accurate early detection, higher survival rates, new treatments on the horizon, and further research on the causes of breast cancer and methods of prevention, to name a few. Although we realize that there is much work still to be done, we are taking some time off this year to re-evaluate our goals in order determine how we can best serve our community. As a result, we will not be holding the Living in Pink Luncheon in 2018. We regret that we will not be sharing this uplifting event with all of you this year as we re-evaluate our mission and vision, however we would like to sincerely thank all of you that have been so supportive of this event for the last fifteen years.

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 14th 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 fourteen years, more than $900,000 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.
