Winter Park 2013

Pink Out Winter Park 2013 has begun. Expect to see some of your favorite things from 2012 such as the outdoor pink ribbon banners, flamingos, educational events, and much more! In 2013, the hope is to reach even more people with the breast health message and encourage even more women to get their mammogram. We are open to new ideas and suggestions for improvement. Please email us any time with your thoughts, opportunity to partner, offers to volunteer and questions. We want to hear from you and look forward to another successful Pink Out Winter Park in October.

Everyone's Flocking

To Pink Out

Winter Park will go to the birds again in 2013 – flamingoes to be exact. Show your breast cancer support by pledging now to purchase your flamingo. For $10, we’ll give you one to keep for yourself and place in your yard and add another to the growing flocks around Winter Park, along with a name tag honoring a survivor or loved one affected by breast cancer.

I pledge to support Pink Out Winter Park 2013 by purchasing a flamingo.

You will receive a confirmation of your pledge
within 48 hours. Thank you!

Annual Mammograms

Save Lives

Importance of Screening
1 in 8 Women develop breast cancer

A yearly mammogram is the single most effective method for detecting breast cancer early, when it is most treatable and beatable. According to the American Cancer Society, a yearly mammogram can identify cancer several years before any symptoms develop, significantly increasing survivability.
