In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, CHANGE, Inc. is hosting a valley-wide event, “Paint the Valley Pink”, during the month of October. Business owners across the Ohio Valley will be asked to help promote breast cancer awareness by decorating their businesses in pink and encouraging their employees and customers to have yearly mammograms for early detection. Last year, we were pleased to have 75 local businesses participate!
Businesses will be contacted throughout Hancock, Brooke and Jefferson Counties to participate in the “Paint the Valley Pink” awareness contest. All contest entries will be given a pink ribbon and event poster to display in their window or door, and be asked to have their place of business decorated in pink throughout the month of October. The displays will be judged by each mayor (or selected candidate) for their city between October 13th -15th, and the winner will be presented with a large wooden ribbon to hang in their business location. Promotion of the event and city participation will be sent to the local media outlets and advertised on CHANGE, Inc.’s website, Facebook and Twitter pages.
If your business would like to participate, please sign up by calling CHANGE, Inc. at 304-797-7733 or for more information on CHANGE, Inc’s Breast & Cervical Cancer Screening program (BCCSP), visit our BCCSP page or call our Family Medical Care’s Women’s Health office at 740-314-8258.
