The Milwaukee Art Museum is Going Pink

The fountains outside of the Milwaukee Art Museum are being dyed pink today. This is in honor of “Race for the Cure” and the color of the international symbol of breast cancer awareness ribbon.  

The Susan G. Komen foundation is “more than pink” however. Their mission is to act, donate, and get involved.

Susan G. Komen “Race for the Cure” occurs Sunday, September 25 at 9 AM. The race is located at the Milwaukee Art Museum at the Milwaukee Lakefront.

Other ways to participate includes making a direct donation or signing up to be a volunteer.

Registration is available at the race Sunday morning or Mayfair Mall this Friday and Saturday. The Pettit Center also offers registration Friday evening and all day Saturday.

Nikki Panico the executive director of “Race for the Cure” explains, “money raised here, stays right here." The proceeds go toward providing financial support for those diagnosed and pays for important screenings and tests such as biopsies.

“Absolutely, this money is saving a life,” says Panico.
