From Development Coordinator, Kristi Okwuonu….enjoy!!
I am so excited that Tour de Pink is two months away. Registration is open, teams are forming and money is being raised. I am overwhelmed every year at the number of participants, sponsors and volunteers that join us for the ride (and many are returning). Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who has signed up so far.
We are off to a great start with the planning of the event and certainly could not have done it without or AMAZING and FABULOUS steering committee. This phenomenal group, led by Margaret Shelton (the BEST RIDE DIRECTOR EVER), dedicate hours upon hours to making Tour de Pink a huge success. They think about the riders, sponsors, volunteers and what is best for them at all times. They have been with us since the beginning, care about the cause and our mission, and are willing to do whatever it takes. I heart them all tremendously!
Prairie View A&M University and it’s staff and students… honestly there are not the words to express our gratitude. There is an ease, comfort and great joy knowing that we have built a relationship/partnership with such a fine institution. It is a pleasure to know that they have our backs and LOVE being there on campus every year. The student volunteers are the most enthusiastic, funny and kind group. 2011 will be a tough group to beat!
I love Tour de Pink. It is an wonderful event and I look forward to it every year. It brings more joy knowing that together we are raising tons of money to make sure that Pink Ribbons Project can continue to promote breast health, save lives and improve the quality of life for those touched by breast cancer.
