MIDLAND, TX—The Basin Breast Cancer Coalition held their 3rd Annual Pink the Park event today at Windlands Park in Midland.
Pink flags were placed along Wadley Road in tribute to breast cancer survivors and patients.
Local healthcare agencies were in attendance to bring awareness to the community about breast cancer.
"We just want to bring awareness and increase the population’s knowledge on what the local resources are and what’s available to them out here," said Fatima Castillo, the organizer of Pink the Park.
Anyone who wishes to still dedicate a flag in honor or in memory of someone with breast cancer can purchase a flag for $25 dollars at the local cancer center.
All proceeds raised will benefit Pink the Basin and Gifts of Hope, two local non-profit organizations.
