Pink Sunday is a congregational breast health outreach program that is an excellent opportunity to educate your church members about the importance of early detection and how to get screened in the local community as well as a way to celebrate breast cancer survivors and remember those who have lost their lives to breast cancer.
Become a Pink Sunday Coordinator and register your church today to make an important contribution to the health of women (and men) in your congregation and community. Susan G. Komen North Louisiana will provide you with free breast health educational materials and new Bible Bookmarks to distribute to your members, along with ideas and tips to help you design your Pink Sunday service and activities.
All congregations are encouraged to participate in spreading this life-saving message of early detection! The 2017 Pink Sunday date for North Louisiana is Sunday, May 7, 2017 (or select an alternate date that best fits your church). Special training/orientations will be held to link you with other Pink Sunday Coordinators and help you prepare for a successful event!
Attendance at a Pink Sunday Meet & Greet/Training is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED for church coordinators in Bossier, Caddo, Ouachita and Webster Parishes. Please have an alternate attend if you are unable.
