Celebrating All Things Pink This Month

This weekend marks the ninth year my family, along with friends, has hosted a horseback ride to raise funds for Susan G. Komen. Ten years ago, we lost a family friend, who rode up horses with us, to breast cancer. In her honor, the Trail Ride for The Cure was born. This ride takes place at a local state park and typically consists of 125 riders who come out to pledge their support for breast cancer research. Here is a picture from last year. My cousin and I froze, but this year, the weather was much more pleasant. 

In honor of breast cancer awareness month, I thought I would share some creative party ideas. I always find myself forwarding these to my mom and aunt who work to make the Trial for the Cure extra special for breast cancer survivors and participants each year. I think each and every one of these are so lovely.

Do you have a tradition for honoring this special observance month? I would love to share them with the ride committee to make next year's event even better.

  1. Sarah, this post is especially touching for me. In July, my 34 year old sister in law was diagnosed with ductal carcinoma. She was 19 weeks pregnant at the time. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy and will then have a double mastectomy and then reconstruction after the birth of her son in December. We are hopeful that she will be in remission after that. Her own mother passed away of breast cancer when she was 8. It is so amazing that you and your family have out together the trail ride to honor your friend. As a family, we are trying to find different ways to be involved and raise awareness for breast cancer. Thank you for the inspiration!


I love hearing from you! It makes my day. Really, it does!
