2020 was a hard year, which forced many fundraisers to cancel or change how they raise money. The Pink Ribbon Run was no different. The committee was overwhelmed with the support the event received, despite hard times brought on by the pandemic. But cancer doesn’t stop for COVID. The need for grant assistance grew during the difficult year.
In 2020, the Beyond Pink TEAM provided over $77,000 in financial assistance to 85 people living with breast cancer. This year, the weekly average of grant assistance has doubled. So far, in 2021, 83 recipients have already received over $83,000 funds.
All funds raised by the Pink Ribbon Run go directly to the Beyond Pink TEAM, the only local breast cancer coalition in the Cedar Valley. The Beyond Pink TEAM’s mission is to provide breast cancer prevention, education, support and advocacy for comprehensive, quality care for all in the Cedar Valley and surrounding communities. Please join us on October 2!
