Important Event Update:
As we continue to be mindful of those affected by Hurricane Ian, this year’s Pink On Parade event will turn entirely virtual!
Hurricane Ian has devastated many areas of Florida and we are praying for our communities as they pick-up the pieces and begin to rebuild. I want to personally thank our Heartland communities for your support during this time.
As we transition this event to a virtual platform, I want to share our appreciation for your flexibility and willingness to continue the rally against breast cancer! The virtual event can be completed in your neighborhood, a park, or on a treadmill (to name a few.) As this decision was tough, we want you to know that your safety and wellbeing are our top priority.
Please submit run times and your pinkest selfies to Kirsten.Turner@AdventHealth.com by 6:00 pm on Sunday, Oct. 16 to be scored.
While many of us have finished the work to clean up downed limbs and power is back on at our homes, dozens of our community members are still suffering from the damaging effects of Hurricane Ian. If you feel called to do so, we are collecting (toiletries, diapers, wipes, clothing, food items, gas gift cards, Walmart gift cards, tarps, etc.) and you can drop off your donations during our drive-thru packet pick up slots, which will take place at:
- AdventHealth (4200 Sun N Lake Blvd., Sebring – look for the pop-up tent)
- Wednesday, Oct. 12 between 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. and
- Saturday, Oct. 15 between 8:00 a.m. and Noon.
Over the last five years, more than 300 men and women, each year, have worn their pinkest attire and rallied against breast cancer. Since 2017, your unwavering support has provided the AdventHealth Sebring Breast Center with more than $250,000 to assist in purchasing state-of-the-art breast technology and has supported men and women in Hardee and Highlands counties who cannot afford breast cancer screenings. This event and the generous donations would not be possible without the efforts of our Pink on Parade participants, community members, sponsors, and business partners.
Please note, all packets that are not picked up will be mailed to participants, using the address you register with, and received within two weeks of the event’s conclusion.
For additional information, to make a donation, or if you have questions, please reach out to the AdventHealth Sebring Foundation team at 863-402-5525.
