October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and that means more than just pinning pink ribbons to your lapel. At Village Toyota, we believe in serving our community. That is why we have gathered a list of resources and local Florida events to help you support the fight against breast cancer.
Making Strides of Tampa – Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino of Tampa hosts the annual Making Strides of Tampa walk. The event takes place on October 28th, 2017 at Amelie Arena and check-in begins at 7:30 am. The walk will begin at 9:00 am and will be followed by entertainment. Join the walk or donate/volunteer at acsevents.org.
Baskets for Breast Cancer – USLI is hosting their third annual online auction for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Last year the auction included sporting event tickets, an Xbox One, and many other prizes. The event raised $52,000 last year and hopes to beat that number for 2017 with proceeds benefitting breastcancer.org. The online auction runs October 11th through 18th, so get on the list now at pink.usli.com!
Komen Florida Suncoast Race for the Cure – The Susan G. Komen Foundation will host their Suncoast Race for the Cure on October 7th at the Albert Whitted Park in St. Pete. The event will include a Kids for the Cure race at 6:00 pm, a 5k race at 7:00 pm, and a one-mile walk at 8:00 pm. Opening ceremonies begin at 5:30 pm, with proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. This year’s event will also offer a yoga and Zumba class on Saturday morning, so sign up before September ends at http://suncoast.info-komen.org.
If you can’t make it to any of these local Florida events, there are many other ways to support the cause. A pink ribbon decal would be a worthy Toyota accessory to ensure you’re fighting the good fight. And if you’re a woman over the age of 50, don’t forget to stop by your local clinic for a breast cancer screening.
