If you have wanted to support the UA Cancer Center in our quest to prevent and cure cancer, here are several ways to join us throughout October - and you may not have to go far out of your way!
We are grateful to these community partners for their support of our work.
- Bashas', Food City and AJ's Fine Foods will make available Pink Paper Ribbons to support breast cancer research at UACC at the registers of all 25 of its stores in Southern Arizona -- from Sierra Vista and Douglas to Yuma and Nogales and throughout Pima County.
To support this effort, Go Girl Energy Drink and Voss Water will each contribute $2,500 to research and prevention efforts through consumer purchases at Bashas'. Customers who purchase Hubert's Half & Half Lemonade Tea at Food City will help contribute $2,500 to help cure breast cancer.
- Fight melanoma today! Join the fight against melanoma at the UA Cancer Center Melanoma Walk on Saturday, Oct. 20 from 2 - 6 p.m. at The UA Cancer Center - North Campus, 3838 N. Campbell Ave. Visit www.fightmelanomatoday.org to register or learn more.
- When you buy a Drink Pink eegee's original pink lemon beverage during the month, a portion of the proceeds will benefit our Better Than Ever (BTE) fitness training/fund raising program. Eegee's promotion is Drink Pink for a Cause.
BTE will also benefit from partial proceed for the Pink Ribbon 7K Run/Walk on October 27.
- Each time you eat at Pastiche Modern Eatery during the month -- one of two months annually designed as Philanthropy with Phlavor month -- Pastiche will donate 5 percent of your pre-tax, pre-gratuity, pre-discount check amount to UACC if you select us on the list presented with the check. Pastiche, on North Campbell Avenue, has been a partner with the UA Cancer Center for a number of years.
