Over the weekend, Baylor College of Medicine helped support the Pink Ribbons Project in celebrating its 10th anniversary of Tour de Pink – a cycling event that helps the organization raise critical funds to increase access to life-saving breast cancer prevention and treatment resources in the community.
Led by Meggin Crawford, nurse practitioner, Baylor organized a team of more than 30 cyclists who participated in the event held at Prairie View A & M University and included routes of 12, 23, 34, 47, 63, 80 and 100 miles around the area.
Together the team has raised more than $7,000 – the fourth highest amount by any team – though the minimum requirement is $125/rider, the equivalent of the cost of having a mammogram.
While the ride is over, donations to the Pink Ribbons Project can be made through Oct. 14.
Baylor also hosted a pit stop on one of the last stops for the 47, 63, 80 and 100-mile routes, helping to cheer on hundreds of cyclists and help them hydrate and refuel before the finish.
