Now that registration for Tour de Pink 2013 is open, we all start an intense focus on generating funds to further breast cancer education as well as to provide mammograms and follow-up care for those in need.
The Pink Ribbons Project staff are heroic in their dedication to our mission and are tireless on managing multiple events.
For the Tour de Pink leadership, we begin our work of re-energizing the wonderful volunteers who are key to Tour de Pink being an excellent and safe bike ride. Our dedicated subcommittee leaders will be reaching out to our core volunteers to get everyone set for September 15, 2013.
For me, as the ride director, I am humbled by the passion of so many folks who are connected to Pink Ribbons Project and Tour de Pink. Folks [both men and women] dealing with some stage of breast cancer, folks who provide loving care for family or friends living with some impact of breast cancer, and folks with large hearts who step in to help because they can!
Losing a grandmother to breast cancer, agonizing with my mother whenever she had a breast cancer scare, sharing the joy of friends in remission are keystones to my commitment and passion for Tour de Pink and Pink Ribbons Project.
Come and join us for 2013 Tour de Pink: ride [7 routes available], be a Pink Phantom Rider [a relaxed way to participate], and NEW – join a Pink Spin initiative – either on your own or with one of our sponsored gyms. SO many ways to join in … and consequently help others!!!
