It is hard to believe that Tour de Pink 2011 is right around the corner! September 18th will be here in only a month! This is the big event I have heard about and waited for since I joined the Pink Ribbons Project family in January. The day’s fun and excitement will begin with the Tour de Pink ride and continue on at the Ride Festival with music, food and raffle prizes. This is my first Tour de Pink and as a staffer and I cannot wait to see the event come together after all the months of preparation. The impact this event will have on me as a breast cancer survivor will be especially meaningful. It is gratifying to know that I have a role in producing an event that brings together so many people whose lives have been touched by breast cancer and have the same goal to raise funds to educate and raise awareness.
There is still much to do in a short amount of time; and we can use your help to make it happen!
This Saturday is a great way to volunteer – at Tour de Pink Packet Stuffing! Breakfast will be provided and as always, we will be busy and promise to have a little fun too! Everyone who signs up for Tour de Pink will receive a bag full of goodies and this year, we are making 2,000 bags!! Please come out and volunteer a few hours of your time. We can’t do it alone!
Date: Saturday, August 20th
Time: 8am – 12 Noon
Location: SoftLayer offices, 315 Capitol St., Houston, TX 77002

As always, thank you for your continued support! Hope to see you Saturday – and we will definitely see you at Tour de Pink on September 18, 2011!
