Staff raises breast cancer awareness

Employees rally for breast cancer awareness


From biking to walking to dog racing to eating fun food, UF Health was well-represented during several October events to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Activities kicked off with the Pink Pumpkin Pedal-Off, a charity bike ride hosted by the Collaboration of Scientists for Critical Research in Biomedicine to fund treatment-resistant breast cancer research at the UF Health Cancer Center. Next, Panera went pink to raise money for women’s cancer research for the UF Health Cancer Center with ribbon-shaped bagels. Then the inaugural Halloweener Derby Day dachshund race and costume contest raised funds to support Climb for Cancer. The month wrapped up with the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. We are proud of our UF Health team members who dedicated time and energy to raising awareness about breast cancer. Stay tuned for more information about the success of these events.
