If you’re like me, you know someone who has experienced breast cancer. Which means you know the importance of October, National Breast Cancer Month. Awesomely, Pasadena has launched their own local version called, “Pasadena Goes Pink.” Activities, all geared towards raising money for local breast cancer patients, are a perfect way to support the cause with family and friends.
Begin this Sunday, October 4th with a walk around the rose bowl. Join firefighters and other locals at 9:30am as they wear pink and stroll the bowl—before celebrating with a family BBQ day at Brookside Park.
On Wednesday October 14th, firefighters will roam the streets with a pink-colored firemen’s boot, asking for locals to “Fill the Pink Boot.” Locations are between Foothill and Rosemead and Lakewood Ave between Green and Cordova, from 7:30am until 12:30pm.
Fundraising continues at California Pizza Kitchen on Los Robles Ave. From 11am to 3pm and 4pm until 10pm, guests can display a flier from the fire department and help the restaurant donate 20% of its proceeds.
Finally, for those of you interested in learning more about breast cancer, the Pasadena Fire Station 38 will host a Health and Wellness Open House on October 24th, starting at 9am.
