Power of Pink: Working Out to Help Stop Breast Cancer
On October 19 and 26, 2017 the 5th Annual Power of Pink: Working Out to Help Stop Breast Cancer events feature a hour workout at Equinox in Bethesda (October 19) and Tysons Corner (October 26), culminating with a luncheon at Redwood Restaurant in Bethesda and Nostos in Vienna. To register, visit the Power of Pink Website.
100 percent of the funds raised at the events will be donated directly to three organizations, Arlington Free Clinic, Breast Care of Washington DC, Capital Breast Care Center and Mercy Health Clinic, that provide breast education, screenings and treatment for women in need in our region.
CBCC, Mercy and AFC do not stop with breast health. Once a woman comes to their centers, they address the whole person by responding to additional health and life problems women in need often face. Partnering with over 20 community and government organizations, they connect with these women and establish a relationship to help with a multitude of needs: food and nutrition services, shelter for the homeless population and counseling for emotional concerns and other health services.
