Worship in Pink
Worship in Pink is a health program for congregations of all faiths with the goal of increasing breast cancer awareness and linking women to resources. We provide a toolkit to a Worship in Pink Coordinator at each congregation to plan an educational event during October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
We invite those interested to attend one of our informational luncheons to learn about the Worship in Pink program.
Volunteers at places of worship throughout central and southeast Ohio may register as a “Worship in Pink coordinator” for their organization:
- A hand fan with the main educational information and resources for help
- A sample of educational materials to include on a info table/ lobby
- A coordinator packet containing:
Bulletin and announcement suggestions
Ideas for activities
Scripture passages, songs, hymns, etc.
Resource guide to assist women who may need help
- Small gifts and a certificate template to celebrate breast cancer survivors
