Pink on Parade
***RPD Supports Pink Team***
Everyone join our team “RPD Supports Pink” for the City of Riverside’s 1st Breast Cancer Walk, Saturday, October 29th at Fairmount Park!
**Registration starts at 8 am and the Walk begins at 9 am**
The “Pink on Parade” Walk will benefit The Pink Ribbon Place, Riverside’s1st and only breast cancer resource center, located at 1465 Spruce Street suite E, Riverside Ca.
All of the money raised will go toward saving lives here in the City of Riverside!
The Pink Ribbon Place provides free mammograms for men and women in Riverside who are low-income, do not have medical insurance or are underinsured. They provide free support services for breast cancer patients, survivors and their families.
Several RPD members have been affected by breast cancer at one time or another, either as a survivor, family or a friend of a survivor.
I was 29 years old when I found a lump in my breast. I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to start aggressive treaments to improve my chances of survival. This September marked my 7th year cancer free and today I am the proud mother of a 3 year old son.
Awareness is IMPORTANT & Early Detection a MUST
Each year over 250,000 new cases of breast cancer are reported in the United States. This disease claims the lives of nearly 50,000 annually, 99% of them are women. Only lung cancer accounts for more cancer deaths in women.
Please join me in this worthy cause to raise funds in order to provide assistance to the victims of Breast Cancer.”
Each participant who signs up for the walk and is able to raise a minimum of $25 in pledges will receive a free “Pink on Parade” T-shirt from the Pink Ribbon Place.
***Great prizes for the team and individual that raises the most money for the walk.***
***A special “Team Spirit” award will be awarded for the best team outfits or other displays of spirit.***
**FREE LIVE MUSIC**
***Factory Tuned Band will be performing for our participants to show their support!!***
