Thank You! ~ Dewey Goes Pink

By Body Shop Fitness Center | Oct 24, 2012
Body Shop Fitness Owner & One of the Event Hosts, Adam Howard, with Mother & Breast Cancer Survivor, Paula

Body Shop Fitness and The Starboard would like to thank all who participated in the 2nd Annual Dewey Goes Pink Breast Cancer 5k and Pink event...1,200 participants!

     Breast cancer affects one in eight women during their lives. Four years ago my mother became a statistic and was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. Watching her endure surgery after surgery, and countless treatments was the hardest thing I have ever experienced in my life. My good friend, Steve “Monty” Montgomery, shares my experience with his mother. While my mother was enduring surgeries and numerous treatments, Barbara “Gugie” Montgomery also began another fight in her long battle against breast cancer.  Monty’s mother, known by her grandchildren as “Gugie”, was a 25 year survivor and breast cancer advocate. Her tireless work fundraising and promoting breast cancer awareness touched so many that have been affected by this disease.

     On October 6th you helped celebrate her life while raising funds for the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition. The vision of the DBCC is to create a community where every person diagnosed with breast cancer becomes a survivor, and fear and doubt are replaced with knowledge and hope. Our collaboration and support from local businesses and community volunteers made DBCC’s vision a reality. Without your generous donation, organizations like the DBCC could not continue to support others in the community that has been affected by breast cancer. We cannot thank you enough for your contribution to the second annual Dewey Goes PINK event.
