Players, parents and patrons of Fastpitch for a Purpose came together in a huge way this past October, knocking it out of the park for the 4th consecutive year. Led by coordinator and creator, Stephanie Lux, this event raised $12,500 for the PBCC’s programs and services to help breast cancer survivors!

Every year, Stephanie rallies the youth in Shrewsbury, York County, to team up in the battle against breast cancer. Girls ages 8-18 play in this 2-day softball tournament, many of them in honor of a loved one who has been touched by breast cancer. The girls leave feeling inspired and passionate about the cause, knowing that they made a difference by doing something as simple as playing a game that they love.

Since 2012, this incredible community-wide fundraiser has contributed over $40,000 to the PBCC and helped spread awareness regarding our free resources. If you would like to get involved with this event, please visit their Facebook page here, and save the date for this year’s tournament: October 1-2, 2016!

Tatatrot2015You. YOU are the reason the PA Breast Cancer Coalition is able to help breast cancer survivors, support their families, advocate for the women of Pennsylvania and award research grants to outstanding scientists in our state.

You’ve organized walks, dress-down days, football games, tea parties – even a boatload of bras!  You’ve opened the doors to your restaurants, car dealerships, banks, grocery stores and everywhere in between to further our mission of finding a cure for breast cancer now… so our daughters won’t have to. For that, we thank you.  Women facing breast cancer, families and researchers thank you, too for making a difference.

Lancaster Newspapers Goes Pink, Raises Thousands for PA Survivors

Posted By on December 15th, 2015 at 8:23 am | 0 comments.

LNP-for-PlLNP (Lancaster Newspapers) washed the pages of its October 25th Sunday News edition in “pink in pursuit of a cure”, and featured an interview with PA Breast Cancer Coalition President and Founder Pat Halpin-Murphy on the front page! The pink initiative went much further than simply transforming the color of its pages—it was all to help bring awareness to National Breast Cancer Awareness month, honor and memorialize breast cancer survivors and those who have lost their battle, and recognize the health care providers and advocates who empower and embrace the cause. PBCC Board Member and Vice President for the South Central Region, Alice Sanders, was also featured in a spotlight interview in the Living Section.
In addition, these pink pages generated a donation of over $17,000 for the PBCC—all from ad sales that chose to go “pink” for a day! The LNP Pink Edition was a historic and meaningful initiative that was a huge success in its first year. Thank you to Barbara Hough Roda, LNP Executive Editor and everyone who sponsored an ad in this special edition!
