From galas to walks to shopping, here's how Dormont and Brookline residents can participate, pledge support and donate to the cause.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and whether you love to shop, attend events, walk or run, there are tons of different ways to support the cause. Check out the list below of opportunities to go pink in Pittsburgh and beyond:
- If you're headed to GroveCity Premium Outlets, stop by the Information Center near the food court and donate $10. The outlets have teamed up with Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and when you donate, you'll receive 25% off one item from select stores. Donations will be accepted on-site only via cash or credit, and all proceeds benefit Komen Pittsburgh. Info is on the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Pittsburgh website.
- Wacoal will sponsor its Fit for the Cure program at Macy's department stores, to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure. For every woman professionally fitted at these events, Wacoal will donate $2 to Komen for the Cure.
