Did you know that Knott's Berry Farm is a HUGE supporter of early breast cancer detection? Together with such organizations such as the Susan G. Komen Orange County foundation, they have helped over five-hundred thousand women get screened and over $2.5 BILLION raised for screening, education and research for the last 3 years!
For the second year in a row, I was invited to help spread the word through Knott's Berry Farm's #KnottsPink fundraiser and I was happy to accept!
There is no-one not effected in some way by breast cancer. There is no one immune to the possibility of getting it. Mothers, Sisters, Daughters, Fathers, Brothers and Sons! Men and children can get it too! Help us spread the word with Knott's Berry Farm and the Susan G. Komen Orange County!
Starting January 4th, buy a "Pink Ticket" and specially designed "pink" merchandise at Knotts and a proceed will go directly to helping women with early detection through Komen Orange County.(January 4th through March 18th)
During the evenings, the Calico Mine and other rides will be “Pink” in to help raise awareness of the ongoing campaign.
Who is Susan G. Koman? The 2016 campaign will focus on the promise that Komen founder Nancy G. Brinker made to her dying sister, Susan G. Komen: that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, Brinkers promise fueled the launch of Susan G. Komen®, a global movement that has grown into the worlds largest nonprofit source of funding for the fight against breast cancer.
In an effort to spread awareness, Knotts Berry Farm and Komen Orange County invite guests to share their for the cure promises during the charitable promotion. Guests can learn more about ways to share their promise at knotts.com/promise or by using #KnottsPink on social media platforms.
Over the last 2 years, $230k has been raised for the cause through their pink merchandise and tickets.
Even if you don't come to Knott's Berry Farm, do yourself a favor and make an appointment to get yourself a mammogram. Early detection saves lives and with non-profit organizations like the Susan G. Komen Foundation, there are low to no-cost clinics near you to help.
