Gilda’s Club of Lowell receives $10 for every person who attempts to donate at July 29 blood drive
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (July 23, 2014) – Thanks to the efforts of Nancy Brinker, sister to Susan G. Komen, and thousands around the world, the color pink is synonymous with the fight against breast cancer. Since 1982, Brinker and others have gone on to raise awareness and millions of dollars for the cause. In 2008, the Lowell High School football team joined the movement, suiting up in pink jerseys to host the first Pink Arrow Pride game and help raise money and awareness for cancer. To date they’ve raised over $1 million.
In 2010, Michigan Blood joined the Pink Arrow Pride movement, hosting a blood drive to raise funds for Gilda’s Club and raise awareness for the connection between donating blood and fighting cancer.
