How to be a part of this party celebrating kicking cancer’s butt

The Greene Towne Center will be a place filled with absolute hope on Saturday — and lots and lots of pink.

Pink Ribbon Girls will be igniting a celebration of the human spirit, perseverance and hope for the second year at a Survivor Celebration at The Greene. This event aims to recognize survivors of all types of cancers — not just breast and reproductive cancers.

“We always say that being a survivor is never a club you want to be invited to, but one that you’re honored to be a part of,” said Sarah Gillenwater, Pink Ribbon Girls Director of Marketing

The day will be packed with a Warrior Breakfast, petting zoo, inflatables, fashion show, scavenger hunt, beer garden with LIVE music and finally, the Warrior Walk.

The walk will be a powerful moment honoring survivors and also those walking to remember loved ones who were lost too soon to cancer.

“Breakfast and event T-shirt are FREE for survivors but you must register to be guaranteed an event t-shirt and a drink ticket for Saturday evening,” according to a PRG press release.

Pink Ribbon Girls work tirelessly to make sure that “no one struggles alone.”

The Pink Ribbon Girls offer:

  • Healthy Meals – Meals that target the nutrients a cancer patient needs, prepared by executive chefs and professionally delivered to homes.
  • Housecleaning – Provided by professional, bonded and insured cleaning services
  • Rides to Treatment
