Rays of Hope Pink Scarf CollectionWednesday September 1, 2021
Since it was founded in 1994, Rays of Hope Walk & Run Toward the Cure of Breast Cancer has been committed to improving the breast health of people in our communities with quality and compassion. The event has grown from 500 to over 20,000 participants and has raised over $15.7 million - all of which has been awarded locally throughout western Massachusetts.
In partnership with the Baystate Health Breast Network and Baystate Health Foundation, funding benefits research at the Rays of Hope Center for Breast Cancer Research, breast cancer programs and services, outreach and education, and awards grants to various community support programs and organizations.
Storrs Library will be collecting handmade pink scarves to donate to the Rays of Hope Walk & Run. Scarves collected will be distributed to breast cancer survivors at the Rays of Hope Walk. All scarves should be adult length and have some pink in them. There are no restrictions on materials or fabric. Please safety pin tags onto scarves with any special care instructions. We have patterns and pink yarn you're welcome to use, while supplies last. We certainly welcome any pink yarn that you'd like to share!
Scarves will be collected starting Wednesday, September 1st until Saturday, October 9th.
