Over the course of two days Dance for the Cure volunteers took pink to the streets, trees, railings and flagpoles to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year, the pink seeped out from Hillsborough out to Bridgewater, Flemington, Middlesex and Somerville as well. Even Manville got a bit of pink! This annual event is so meaningful to the DFC team as it calls attention to the prevalence of this disease, furthering our organization's ability to financially assist local families in need due to the challenges that accompany a breast cancer diagnosis.
"Tying the Town Pink reminds us of the importance of breast cancer awareness, and is a remembrance of those who lost the fight." - Lisa Scalera, DFC Volunteer
Dance for the Cure would like to thank the officials that joined us in saturating the towns on Sept 30th and Oct 1st, including Hunterdon County Commissioner Susan Soloway, Manville Chief of Police Tommy Herbst, Middlesex Mayor John Madden, Raritan Township Administrator Karen Gilbert and Somerville Mayor Dennis Sullivan.
And of course, Dance for the Cure could not paint the town pink without our volunteer painters: Dance for the Cure Co-founders Kathleen Cirioli and Joanne Liscovitz, and volunteers Danielle Hughes, Lory Hughes, Brooke Herbst, Lisa Scalera, Teri Halvorson , Judy Craven, Donna Cease, Jess Tallman, Kat Adams, Stephanie Mardekian, Teresa Foti and Rosalinda Giles.
"It's so wonderful we are able to help spread awareness by 'painting' the town pink!" - Donna Cease, DFC Volunteer
