Paint the Valley Pink 2016 Participants and WinnersWEIRTON, WV – CHANGE, Inc. is pleased to announce the winners for Paint the Valley Pink 2016. For the past three years, CHANGE, Inc. has hosted the Paint the Valley Pink event that encourages businesses across Hancock and Brooke Counties in West Virginia and Jefferson County, Ohio, this year also including the city of East Liverpool, to decorate their businesses in pink to raise breast cancer awareness throughout the Ohio Valley during the month of October.

Throughout thirteen communities, 71 local businesses participated and took on the challenge of raising breast cancer awareness.

CHANGE, Inc.’s Board of Directors, management and staff would like to thank the mayors for not only making the tough decision of selecting a winner, but agreeing to participate in their respective community. The winners were presented with a pink, handcrafted ribbon trophy made by CHANGE, Inc.’s Weirton clinical manager, Peggy Whitmore.

Again, CHANGE, Inc. would like to thank those who participated in this year’s campaign and for bringing breast cancer awareness to the Ohio Valley.
