A Heartfelt Thank You for the Success of THE Pink Out 5K
To our Check for a Lump supporters and friends, I am filled with gratitude as I reflect on the tremendous success of the 7th Annual Pink Out 5K. This year’s event saw more participants than ever before, proving that our local community is dedicated to supporting our breast cancer community. Your presence sent a powerful message of hope, strength, and support for those who need it most. Energy and enthusiasm radiated through the event, creating an atmosphere of love and compassion. First and foremost, I want to extend a heartfelt thanks to our sponsors. Without their generous contributions and partnership, this event would not have been possible. Your belief in our cause, and your willingness to support us, is the driving force behind our success. We are moved by the overwhelming generosity of our donors. Your kindness, whether in large or small amounts, makes a huge difference. Contributions like yours go a long way in providing access to our four pillar programs for Arizona residents. Every dollar you donated represents kindness, and for that, we are forever thankful. To the local businesses, food trucks, non-profits, and other organizations that participated in our vendor village, we want to express our sincere gratitude for contributing to an unforgettable event. Your dedication to supporting our non-profit and the breast cancer community enhanced the participants' experience. You were the perfect collaborators in bringing our vision to reality. Our dedicated volunteers are truly the best. Your tireless efforts, enthusiasm, and unwavering support ensured the Pink Out 5K ran smoothly. We appreciate the countless hours you committed to this cause, and it inspires us every day. We are beyond thrilled to announce that the number of participants exceeded our expectations! Your presence not only brightened the event but also showed that the community is united in the fight against breast cancer. Your determination and commitment to our cause is truly inspiring. In a show of unity and solidarity, we gathered to celebrate life, honor those affected by breast cancer, and work together to make a difference. Together, we have not only raised awareness, but also critical funds to support our free programs. As we wrap up this year's Pink Out 5K fundraiser, we want you to know that your contributions, whether monetary or in the form of time and effort, have made a meaningful impact. The funds raised will go directly towards providing free breast health education, mammograms, diagnostic testing, wigs, and survivor support. I want to share a heartfelt message from one of our participants: “I wanted to tell you how amazing the event was. Really, it came together so beautifully and some women behind me walking were gushing about how fun it was for them to be represented and get out together to be part of the community like this. So wonderful.” – Sarah L., mammogram client. Thank you once again to all our sponsors, donors, vendors, volunteers, and participants. Your support has shown us the true power of community and its potential to bring about positive change. I am looking forward to future collaborations, future fundraisers, and, most importantly, future progress in the fight against breast cancer. Together, we are making a difference, one step at a time.
