On Saturday, October 26, the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center (JMBCC) held its 5th annual Color Me Pink Run/Walk. More than 215 attendees enjoyed a 5K run or 1.5 mile walk dotted with pink color stations throughout the streets of Windber.
“The Color Me Pink Run/Walk was a great success this year. I want to thank all the participants, volunteers, and sponsors for their continued support. We can’t wait to see everyone next year!” said Erin Goins, JMBCC Director.
The community’s support helped to raise more than $4,000 this year. Since its inception, the Color Me Pink Run/Walk has brought in more than $20,530 for the JMBCC’s Pink Ribbon Care fund, a program that provides assistance for patients who are unable to pay for breast-related health services- including mammograms, follow-up diagnostic services, and genetic counseling.
The JMBCC would like to recognize their generous event sponsors: 1st Summit Bank, Ace’s Banquets & Catering, HomeTeam Graphics, Kaiser Embroidery, Panera Bread, Penn Metal Fabricators, Randy’s Bilo, Slovenian Savings & Loan Association, The Rambler, Walnut Medical Services, Windber Moose Lodge #349, Windber VFW 4795.
