What We Do

Breast Cancer Awareness High School Video Contest

The Breast Cancer Foundation and the Breast Cancer Task Force of the Greater Miami Valley host the Breast Cancer Awareness High School Video Contest. Each year high school students all around the Miami Valley are encouraged to participate by making a PSA (Public Servie Announcement) on Breast Cancer Awareness. Scholarships are awarded to the top 10 winners (first prize is $2,000) and each school receives a $250 award for its top video as well.

"Paint the Square Pink" is now "Catching Pink Fever"

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. At this annual kick-off event, we would dye the fountain pink and raise pink flags that fly over Courthouse Square during the month of October. In 2013 we partnered with the University of Dayton's Dayton Flyers. We moved the event to their Homecoming game at Welcome Stadium. What a wonderful partnership!
Breast Cancer Task Force members representing many area agencies, organizations, and hospitals set up educational displays and distribute information about breast cancer prevention, detection, and treatment. Local restaurants also offer discounts for "Wearing Pink" on the day of the event.
