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!

5,000 Miles. One Goal: Fight Breast Cancer

Posted By on April 15th, 2015 at 8:28 am | 1619 comments.

One-lap-of-america-for-plLancaster County Corvette Club members Jim Roberts and Shane Lintner wanted to combine their love of racing with a greater calling to help breast cancer survivors and their families. Through their participation in the 2015 One Lap of America, they are able to leverage support for the PBCC by traveling 5,000 miles for our cause! How?

“The lives of many of our friends have been touched by cancer, especially breast cancer,” said Roberts. “This is a tangible way others can support the cause, by having their name or the name of a loved one come along on this journey with us.”

The Brock Yates’ One Lap of America is an endurance race that challenges the preparation and endurance of both man and machine. It is an offshoot of the original “Cannonball Sea to Shining Sea Memorial Trophy Dash” created in the early 1970’s. Today, all the competition takes place on the tracks, and when all is said and done, the duo will have traveled nearly 5,000 miles in eight days, working their way out as far west as Colorado in Jim’s Yellow 2000 Corvette Coupe! Stickers that will decorate the roof and body of the Corvette can be purchased for a minimum donation of $10. They will list the donor name, or you can purchase one in honor or memory of a loved one. To make a donation, simply visit and fill in “One Lap of America” when prompted for the Title of Event.
