Worship In Pink Toolkit
This toolkit is designed to provide faith-based organizations with ideas and resources to help plan, develop, and implement Worship in Pink events. The resources in the toolkit are simple to implement and may be used at the discretion of your congregation.
WORSHIP IN PINK is a grassroots effort to partner the Affiliate with places of worship, providing resources to educate the members of their congregations on breast health and breast cancer. We encourage your congregation to join us in the fight against breast cancer and honor community survivors. All congregations are encouraged to participate in spreading the life-saving message of early detection at any time during the year, not only on Sundays. Many congregations hold events in May around Mother’s Day, in October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month or near the dates of the Wilmington Race for the Cure (September 2018) and the Triangle Race for the Cure (May 2018). Choose the date that works best for you and your congregation!
As part of WORSHIP IN PINK, the Komen North Carolina Triangle to the Coast Affiliate will provide breast health information materials and/or promotional items to each participating religious organization. Each individual organization is responsible for coordinating the event at their site. ANY religious organization in the Affiliate’s 29-county service area is encouraged to participate in spreading the life-saving message of early detection.
