Sharsheret Summit: Pink, Teal, and You

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are dedicating a week to bringing educational and awareness programs to people all across the country through our Sharsheret Summit.

We need your help to educate tens of thousands of people virtually and in-person all across the country, improving and saving lives.

Organizations are encouraged to participate in two ways:

  1. Sign on as a summit partner and promote the summit and encourage your members to participate in any or all of the programs.

  2. Join the national campaign and host your own event during this week, or whenever works best for you. We will work with your organization to develop and implement a program that is just right for you.
