Sharsheret Pink Day

February 13, 2019

Sharsheret Pink Day, is a worldwide initiative by students to raise awareness about breast cancer and cancer genetics and help save lives. Individuals, students on campus, organization and company employees wear pink as a way to generate conversations and mark this day with a wide range of educational and fundraising events. As many individuals know someone directly affected, we ask that you be mindful of those participating in your programs as the day approaches. Feel free to contact Sharsheret directly for information on how you can provide support.
