Thank you to all who came to Power of Pink: Working Out to Stop Breast Cancer on October 20th and supported the women of Arlington Free Clinic through this fantastic event that raised $26K to help underserved Arlington women detect and fight breast cancer.
Power of Pink: Working Out to Help Stop Breast Cancer
On October 13 and 20, 2016 the 5th Annual Power of Pink: Working Out to Help Stop Breast Cancer events featured a hour workout at Equinox in Bethesda (October 13) and Tysons Corner (October 20), culminating with a luncheon at Redwood Restaurant and Bar in Bethesda and Nostos in Vienna. Learn all about it here: Power of Pink Website.
100 percent of the funds raised at the events were donated directly to three organizations, Arlington Free Clinic, 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.
