Pledge the Pink
Did you know that two of our members will be island jumping and dancing with flamingos next weekend (October 26-28th)? That sounds like an exotic vacation, doesn’t it?
On the contrary Lisa Willis, Emily Barefoot, and their friend Darlene Parker will be working tirelessly to raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Prevention and Treatments through the Pledge the Pink Event. Over three days, this team of women from our area will join hundreds of others who will be walking/running 30 miles in 3 days covering 3 islands. They begin on Fripp Island, move to Bluffton & Pine Island and finish on Hilton Head Island.
The Pledge the Pink event raises funds that are given to national and local non-profits that are fighting breast cancer. These organizations fund biopsies, treatment, patient services, and research. In addition, every $50 donation will provide one mammogram. Each mammogram has the potential to save a life. A large percentage of the money raised for this event stays in the Carolinas.
We are so proud of Emily and Lisa and we know they represent Hood Memorial as they walk through the beautiful islands of the Carolinas. We send our love and prayers and support. Their love of God and their personal testimony of how God has worked in their lives drives them to walk 30 miles to support breast cancer prevention and awareness. We extend our gratitude for their ministry and their willingness to give of themselves in such a special way and for teaching us new ways to share God’s love.
We pray they will have fun, meet new people, share laughter, learn about themselves, and experience God’s love in great ways. You can help support their journey…
- Write a letter of encouragement to Lisa, Emily, and Darlene. They can read these when they feel like giving up…it is our way of showing them our support and expressing our love of them. You can give any handwritten notes to Pastor Joanie.
- Make a donation to their team, The 3 Amingos. Go to www.pledgethepink.com. When prompted to look up a participant or team you can use Lisa Willis, Emily Barefoot, or The 3 Amingos.
