Bayhealth’s 15th Annual Go Pink! Campaign Raises Over $22,000

Monday, February 8, 2021 | Community Outreach, Cancer Care
Bayhealth celebrated the 15th anniversary of its annual Go Pink! campaign in 2020. Go Pink! brings awareness to breast cancer and the importance of mammography screenings and raises money to fund screenings for the underserved patient populations. Most of the funds are generated through the sale of specially designed Go Pink! T-shirts. Proceeds are split between Bayhealth and the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition (DBBC) to provide breast screenings and education programs to the local community. This year’s campaign raised over $22,000. 

“While our program was scaled back this year due to COVID restrictions, we were still blessed with strong support from our community,” said Bayhealth Cancer Institute Executive Director and Senior Director of Operations, Oncology Service Line John Shevock, FACHE, FACMPE. “Bayhealth and Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition teams developed creative new ways for the community to support this fundraiser that helps our underserved populations access cancer screening programs.”
