PALM COAST, Fla., September 22, 2015 – During the City of Palm Coast’s commissioners meeting on September 15, the commissioners declared the entire month of October as the Florida Hospital Pink Army month.
The Florida Hospital Pink Army campaign was launched in the fall of 2010 and is aimed at enlisting individuals to help create greater awareness about the life-saving benefits of annual mammograms and early detection. In its first year alone, the Pink Army enlisted more than 6,000 “soldiers” to battle breast cancer in Volusia and Flagler counties. Now, armed with more than 52,000 soldiers, the Pink Army movement has swept across the state, encouraging Central Floridians to join this important cause. Florida Hospital Pink Army is on active duty in the following counties: Flagler, Hardee, Highlands, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia.
As part of the city's Palm Coast Running Series, Florida Hospital Flagler will host the fifth annual Pink Army 5K on October 11. This chip-timed race will start at Florida Hospital Flagler, 60 Memorial Medical Parkway, Palm Coast, travel along Town Center Blvd., and then return to the hospital. For more information about the Pink Army 5K, contact Luciana Santangelo at (386) 986-2323 or Lsantangelo@palmcoastgov.com.
