MISSION AND HISTORY
The Bedford County Pink Ribbon Fund was formed in 2017 by the local committee that planned and executed the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk from 2011-2016.
When the ACS decided to consolidate the Bedford County Walk with their event in Blair County, our committee decided that we needed to continue an event here in Bedford to support LOCAL families, individuals, organizations and institutions in the fight against breast cancer.
Led by our long-time chair, Dr. Katherine Erlichman, a two-time breast cancer survivor, the committee formed a Fund through the Bedford County Endowments/Community Foundation for the Alleghenies, a 501-c3 charitable foundation committed to improving the quality of life in the Bedford County region. Together, we are continuing our work on an annual walk, and adding a 5k run in 2017 as well.
We hope you will join us in continuing our mission to end breast cancer... while supporting those facing their own fight.
