Paint the Town Pink 2022

Each October, our community comes together in a very colourful way to support those fighting breast cancer. From hundreds of pink pumpkins to nearly a dozen local businesses running promotions to benefit local cancer support, there are lots of ways to help us paint the town pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

This year, we want YOU to help us PAINT THE TOWN PINK!

Painted Pumpkins of Hope - Available now

Panted pumpkins of hope are a visible symbol of support throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Introduced a decade ago by 11 year old Mackena to support her mom roughly a decade ago, they are now a visible sign of hope each October.
