Get your PINK on!

The Cancer Care Committee of the Campbell County Healthcare Foundation is at it again, folks: they are itching to Paint Gillette Pink for all of October 2018, and a little of September 2018.

And they want you to join them.

Breast cancer. Two small words that barely take up any space when written, but they have the power to take over one’s life. Cancer is a disease that has affected—or will affect—nearly all of us at some point in our lives.

As many of you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month; therefore, all of the funds raised during Paint Gillette Pink will be donated to local patients and families who are fighting cancer. For those who don't know, the Cancer Care Committee considers applications and grants up to $5,000 each month, giving out more than $160,000 since 2013.

Check out these events to see how you can get your pink on:

  • Purchase Paint Gillette Pink car decals ($10) or 24”x24” yard signs ($25) and display them proudly. Items can be purchased at the Campbell County Recreation Center, 250 Shoshone Avenue in Gillette. Cash or check only please.
  • Put your spare change in a donation jar at participating local businesses—find out who is supporting Paint Gillette Pink on its Facebook page.
