Tour de Pink Atlanta – Benefitting YSC – Sign up now!

You know that we support everything Young Survival Coalition does.  Our In Favor of a Cure™ initiative supports YSC through our signature Pink Ribbon Collection.
Breast cancer is an insipid disease that affects millions of young women daily.  I’ve had the pleasure of working with one survivor who knew first hand the power of the YSC support network, and I’m here to tell you, these are very dedicated, caring and talented people.  They are a God-send to those touched by this illness.
 I’m tickled pink (pun intended) to help publicize a super-fun event they’re holding in Atlanta on Saturday, October 17, 2009 at Perimeter Mall.  It’s called Tour de Pink (don’t you just love the name?) and it’s a great bike ride through the lovely, tree-shaded northern suburbs of Atlanta.  Proceeds from your fund raising efforts go to the Atlanta Chapter of YSC and trust me, they don’t spend it all on trips and accoutrements.  They manage their donation dollars wisely.
Here’s a little bit about the Metro chapter straight from their website:

YSC Greater Metro Atlanta was formed at the end of 2000 by a 22-year old college student facing a breast cancer diagnosis. YSC Atlanta currently serves 11 counties in the Metro Atlanta area. We focus on education and outreach opportunities and provide peer-to-peer support for newly diagnosed young women. We also hold monthly social events for survivors and volunteer nights for anyone interested in getting involved. YSC Atlanta provides educational programs, support and long term survivorship planning for a young woman from the moment she is diagnosed throughout her life.


You might remember a while back I posted some information about YSC  International from Jenna Glazer.  You can click here to see it again if you’d like.

So even if you aren’t in the Atlanta area to join us for the Tour de Pink Atlanta Bike Ride, but you know of a young woman who is facing breast cancer, do visit the YSC website for a chapter near you.  The support and educational programs are vital, educational and awesome.
