5TH ANNUALPAINT PALESTINE PINK WALK/RUN WILL BE OCTOBER 3, 2015
Paint Palestine Pink was founded in August 2010 as a non-profit organization. It serves Anderson County and surrounding areas. The goal of Paint Palestine Pink is to increase breast cancer survival rates by providing mammograms to women and men that are uninsured and underinsured. To apply for assistance with a mammogram go to the Mammogram Application and fill out the application form All money raised by this organization is used locally, none of the funds are sent to state or national organizations. Funds are used strictly to benefit residents of Anderson County and immediately surrounding areas only. This organization is completely funded by donations and run by a board of directors and community volunteers. Donations may be taken to Texas Oncology, or may be made to individual participant fundraising pages at http://www.active.com/palestine-tx/running/distance-running-races/paint-palestine-pink-annual-walk-run-2015?int Since 2010 $100,000 in funds have been raised, and 1032 diagnostic/medical procedures have been provided by PPP.
The 5th Annual PAINT PALESTINE PINK Walk/Run is fast approaching. There are some exciting changes this year. We are thrilled to announce the addition of a 5K fun walk/run.
