Painting western North Dakota pink

October 25, 2019

All through October, communities across the region rallied to fight breast cancer.

Braving early winter weather, supporters joined TeamEdith at great events during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to raise funds for the Edith Sanford Breast Initiative.

Here are some of the highlights so far:

  • Cowgirls for a Cure launched awareness efforts early with the second annual barrel racing event on Sept. 14. With 154 participants, the event raised nearly $57,000. Special thank you to our sponsor, Dakota Community Bank & Trust.
  • Despite being canceled due to an early winter storm, supporters of the Edith Sanford Run/Walk for Breast Cancer continued to show their support for the cause by raising funds for patient care and research.
  • High school athletes and their fans showed their pink pride at volleyball matches, football games and swim meets.

There is still time to get involved and show your support before the month ends.

Join us for a pink night at Blarney Stone Pub, get a pink streak at Luxe Beautique and Salon or shop Braun Distributing in Dickinson for a case of pink beer.
