In 2007 the Boston Public Health Commission established the Pink and Black Team to raise money for the American Cancer Society Making Strides Walk Against Breast Cancer. The Pink and Black team is named after the Pink and Black Campaign which raises awareness about breast cancer survival for Black women. Black women are more likely to die after being diagnosed with breast cancer than women of other races.
Joining the Pink and Black Team will help in this cause, and allow women of color to speak out about their battle with breast cancer. Please join us if you are a breast cancer survivor, friend or family member, or you care about this cause on October 3, 2010.
