In the past five years, three women in my life have shown immense courage, tenacity, and beauty whilst going through treatment for breast cancer. Fortunately, all three are living healthy lives today.
This fall and last, I've been lucky enough to be a small part of a local fundraiser to support breast cancer research. The amazing ladies at Pacific Northwest Pilates and my good friend Liz at LHK Marketing put together a month-long event called Pilates for Pink. The event includes raffles, classes, a donation drive, and finishes with a Sunday morning pilates workshop and celebration under the gorgeous trees of Portland's Hoyt Arboretum.
With a special, limited-edition earring design, as well as a trunk show, I was honored to donate a percentage of proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. All told, the event raised over $5200 for the BCRF.
Take that, cancer.
