Pink the Pews
Pink the Pews is a grassroots initiative, started by Colors of Promise back in 2012, which links women to resources and provides the opportunity for congregations of all faiths to spread awareness and share life-saving messaging regarding breast cancer and health screenings. Churches usually decorate an area with pink items and have an area set aside where people can pick up information on cancer screening, prevention, and area resources. A lot of the churches recognize breast cancer survivors and the minister may have a message (sermon) about taking care of yourself.
Pink the Pews is the largest annual educational outreach event executed by Colors of Promise.
