Ten years ago, the Pink Bragade walked its first walk in the fight against breast cancer. Now, after treading our way through Long Beach, Santa Barbara (x 2), New York City and San Francisco, we will be heading to our nation's capital in May to walk the AVON 39 WASHINGTON DC event. We are charged up and ready to meet our goals, both financially and physically.
Once again we turn to our friends and family to help us raise the funds needed to join in this march against breast cancer. Each year, we write more and more names on our honor roll - those who are fighting, surviving or have been taken by this dreadful disease. We want our list to stop growing and this is our way of taking on this cancer as well as other types of cancers that are impacting those we love.
Please join us with a donation to one of our team members. It is tax deductible - so maybe consider a donation for both 2017 and 2018! We appreciate every gift - large or small.
Follow us on our blog - www.pinkbragade.com to see what we get up to as we train along our way to the 39 miles we will tackle in May.
