Fountains Turn PINK In Pittsburgh

All the fountains in Pittsburgh are PINK in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This has been going on four years but I never knew about it!

The Pennsylvania Commission for Women turned the fountain at Point State Park pink to raise awareness about the incidence of Breast Cancer and the benefits of an early diagnosis.They hope the fountain will serve as a reminder for women to do monthly breast self-exams and schedule yearly mammograms. One out of every 7 women in Pennsylvania will be diagnosed with breast cancer.



This is the fountain at the court house.

Thanks Bev for hosting "PINK Saturday". Don't forget to visit How Sweet the Sound to find other PINK participants.

Have a wonderful weekend,

  11. Hello, Esther, you are the blog I'm visiting that I've never been to before as Bev suggested for Pink Saturday. Nice to meet you, chickee. I would have guessed you lived in Alabama from the music on th' blog, but you say Pennsylvania so I trust you know where you live, sugar. My hubs is from PA also but we're in Idaho now after living in Calif for many years. You have a darling blog, sweetpea! Drop by when you have a spare moment......

  16. Lovely Pink Saturday post and sweet blog, too. Woke up to a dusting of snow on the ground so even thought this isn't Saturday I really needed a boost! Today you made me smile...those fountains are remarkable!

    Sorry, I didn't get to see everyone yesterday. I had important business. My 11 year-old grandson was playing football and he wanted Mimi to go to the out-of-town-last-of-the-season-game. THEY WON AGAINST AN UNDEFEATED TEAM! WOO-HOO! 35 - 17☺

    Hope the coming week blesses you with sunshine, happiness and good friends.
