‘Paint It Pink’ set for Oct. 18
Southern Ohio Medical Center will have its third annual “Paint It Pink” for Breast Cancer Awareness Month event Oct. 18.
The community is encouraged to wear “Paint It Pink” T-shirts and decorate homes, schools and businesses in pink. The event will continue on Oct. 19 with the Ceremonial Pink Parade, a “Paint It Pink” Zumbathon and a “Paint It Pink” 5K Run/Walk.
The goal is to facilitate a discussion about the disease, as well as to elevate mammography-screening rates.
SOMC will host free breast cancer screenings at the Cancer Center from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday.
“Paint It Pink” T-shirts can be purchased starting Tuesday in the SOMC Gift Gallery on the hospital’s main campus as well as in the SOMC Cancer Center’s Gift of Hope Boutique.
