Volunteers Needed Ahead Of Next Weeks Think Pink Day

Pink lights encouraging breast cancer awareness are illuminating the three Northstate Dignity Health hospitals, Saint Elizabeth in Red Bluff and Mercy Medical Centers in Redding and Mount Shasta. They’ll be lit up for the remainder of the month. Think Pink Day is Thursday of next week, when bags will be handed out containing educational information. Volunteers are needed Tuesday to stuff the bags. Volunteers can call 710-4320 or email mwthinkpink@gmail.com. Saturday is the Battle of the Bags Cornhole Tournament at Big League Dreams. The push for awareness of early detection has helped achieve a 98-percent survival rate for breast cancer patients when caught early.
