Pink Out Pleasant View started in 2010, as the grass roots effort of area business woman Dianne Seeley. The goal was to raise breast cancer awareness and funds to support Susan G. Komen®. Mrs. Seeley and her mother, a breast cancer survivor, participated in the Susan G. Komen 3-day® 60-mile walk. The walk requires a pledge directly to Susan G. Komen® in the amount of $2,300.00 to benefit the organization’s platform of breast cancer education and awareness, free or reduced cost screenings, assistance for treatment, financial support, and research. All costs associated with the walk are the sole responsibility of the participants. The first year brought a community yard sale; buttons, t-shirts, and residential bows being sold; and a survivor brunch.
The following year 2011, brought the need for a more organized committee; thus, the birth of Pink Out Pleasant View. Members included Marcia Holman Reynolds, Dianne Seeley, Kelly Ellis, Lorraine Ridgley, Amy Douglas, Diana Knight, Chrissy Henderson and Karen Lewis. 2011 brought the addition of the Booby Bolt 5k and the Breast Friends Ball.
In 2015 Pink Out Pleasant View became Pink Out For Hope, Inc. and was organized in to a 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. With the help of our community, we continue to fight for a cure, raise awareness, and offer support for area breast cancer patients with month long activities in October each year.
