Featuring record attendance, LINKS Charity and WCA Hospital hosted the second annual LINKS Pink Walk: A Celebration of Courage presented by Jamestown Radiologists, Medline, and Whisper's Boutique at Patient's Pharmacy at the Chautauqua Mall.
The event celebrated the courage of those who have battled breast cancer and will enhance local breast cancer care at WCA Hospital through the purchase of 3-D Breast Tomosynthesis equipment.
The LINKS Pink Walk festivities featured many family-friendly activities including the Balloon Man, face painting and a basket giveaway. Just before the walk, tribute was paid to the courage of breast cancer survivors which included the premier of "The Pink Glove Dance" video on a large screen.
At the conclusion of the Pink Glove Dance video premier, all breast cancer survivors were invited forward to join the six survivors who were specifically featured in the video. Pictured below, the LINKS Pink Walk was led by breast cancer survivors as all walkers carried the LINKS Tribute Chain around the Chautauqua Mall, a chain featuring thousands of pink links that were purchased in honor or in memory of loved ones who have battled breast cancer.
The video, which pays tribute to six local breast cancer survivors, can be viewed and voted for on-line as part of a national competition at PinkGloveDance.com, or viewed on YouTube by searching "WCA Hospital Pink Glove Dance."
The actual LINKS Pink Walk was led by breast cancer survivors as all walkers carried the LINKS Tribute Chain, a chain featuring thousands of pink links that have been purchased in honor or in memory of loved ones who are or have battled breast cancer.
The LINKS Pink Walk and its associated events and activities are expected to generate more than $20,000 in support of local breast cancer care.
