Today marks our 3rd year participating in the Get Pink’d! program. It is an annual wear pink day in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF). Friends, colleagues, and school groups across the province participate in this event by purchasing buttons and socks (new this year!) and wearing them along with pink clothing to show support for the CBCF and their efforts to fight breast cancer. UWT is proudly wearing our buttons and socks today, along with all shades of pink (and a few guys in their red & purple!). To go along with our event this year, we are holding a bake sale. We have currently raised over $110 in button and sock purchases, and over $79 in bake sale funds! And the day is still young!


We are also holding 3 contests this year, to recognize our team’s support of this great cause. There will be prizes for best baked good, best pink costume, and best guess for total money raised today! Stay tuned for the results!

Our fundraising dollars, along with all other participating teams funds, go towards specific projects that make a difference in our community or in the area of medicine. The British Columbia/Yukon Region raises funds for the following purposes: awareness, education, treatment and research.

Most importantly, we love the event as it allows us to all come together and work towards creating a future without breast cancer, a disease that impacts each and every one of us (from grandmothers, mothers, sisters, aunts, friends past and present who battle/battled the disease). We are proud to support and are eager to continue to be Champions for the Cause through this event, our corporate giving program, and our participation in the yearly Run for the Cure.

Get involved!
