Register as an individual, start a team or join a team and ask friends and family to support your fundraising efforts. Personalize your fundraising page: explain why are you getting involved, what is your connection to the cause? The sad truth is that everyone has been touched by cancer. Pink Vail gives us a chance to support local men and women fighting the disease, celebrate survivors, and commemorate those who have lost their battle with cancer.
In 2012, the inaugural year of Pink Vail, funds raised exceeded the initial goal by 60%. Feedback was wildly positive, and all funds directly benefited Shaw Regional Cancer Center’s Spirit of Survival program, which includes free fitness classes, nutrition coaching, and emotional support for Shaw’s cancer patients and survivors.
In 2013, participation and funds raised nearly doubled, the momentum continued in 2014, and in 2015, Pink Vail numbers hit an all-time high - thanks to 2,424 participants, 162 teams, 4,617 donors, and 360 volunteers, over $720,000 were raised. In only four years, Pink Vail has raised nearly $1.8 million for patients with all types of cancer at Shaw Regional Cancer Center.
Why pink? Pink Vail was started as a fundraising event to support breast cancer, specifically, and has grown and expanded to help ALL patients and survivors at Shaw Regional Cancer Center.
