This is the second year of the Pink Pumpkin Run and we kind of feel like the proud parents of this event! While the Pink Pumpkin Run committee has been running this for two years, the idea of painting the pumpkins pink and giving back to the breast cancer cause started right here in our office.
Dr. Wilk's wife, Julie, is a breast cancer survivor of 6 years! Her and her daughter (our marketing director!), Erin, started painting pumpkins years ago and then the entire staff got involved. Since then, the Pink Pumpkin Run committee has taken it up a few notches, but we here at Grand Avenue Dental Care are still the HOT PINK SPONSORS and we still paint pumpkins and decorate the office in pink. This year, you will even see us donning some Pink Pumpkin Run scrubs in October as well to show our support!
We whole-heartedly believe in the mission of the Pink Pumpkin Run: to help local families affected by breast cancer, by providing basic daily needs in the form of gift cards and services. We also hope to encourage, empower and inspire our community, and the families within it, through our efforts!
We encourage you to take part in the day's events by running, walking or signing your kids up for the new Kid's Dash this year! Or paint some pumpkins pink and donate them to the event. Lastly, you can go online and donate to their cause and know that ALL money raised is given back to local families who need it.
If you have any questions about this great event or how you can get involved, don't hesitate to ask! For more information on the Pink Pumpkin Run OR to sign up, please visit their website or Facebook page:
