Color it Pink this October 1 to Honor Survivors, Families

Pink-Fountain-for-PLThe PA Breast Cancer Coalition invites you to kick off National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with us Wednesday, October 1 at 11:00am in Harrisburg at the State Capitol East Wing Fountain. Together we will turn the Fountain pink in honor of survivors and families fighting breast cancer across our state.  Can you be there?

Throughout the entire month of October, the fountain will serve as a reminder to all women of the importance of good breast health and the need for annual mammograms. Over the years, the pink fountain has also become a beacon of hope for the hundreds of thousands of survivors across the Commonwealth that one day we will find a cure for breast cancer… so our daughters won’t have to. This event is made possible by the incredible support of the PA Department of General Services.
Color it Pink with the PBCC on Wednesday, October 1 at 11:00am outside the State Capitol East Wing Fountain on Commonwealth Avenue.  We hope to see you there!
