We appreciate the continued support and dedication that the community has given to Pink October. It is because of you that we’re able to make a difference in the lives of local women. Pink October started in 1997 as a single 5K Race for Awareness. It has grown into 8 events (6 of which are in October). A large part of our outreach are low-cost mammograms and health screenings.  Health Screening Days, and low-cost mammograms throughout the month are provided by Sutter Medical Foundation, Rideout Health, Sutter Buttes Imaging, Peach Tree Healthcare, Yuba City Advanced Imaging and Ampla Health.


We are so proud of the awareness that is raised and the lives that are touched by Pink October. All money raised through Pink October events goes to the Geweke’s Caring for Women Foundation. The purpose of the foundation is to assist local women who are battling female forms of cancer with their financial hardships. The foundation has helped pay for utilities, rent and mortgages, even funeral expenses. over 350 women have been helped, not including the countless women who have benefitted from the top-notch imaging equipment in the Yuba-Sutter community which the Foundation has been blessed to make large contributions towards.


We look forward to you getting involved in Pink October. Whether through participating in our events, volunteering your time, or giving a financial or in-kind donation, we could use your help.
