October events brings breast cancer awareness into focus

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Carter’s Champions — an organization that helps fight breast cancer locally — is hosting a couple of great events.

With us this morning is Carter’s Champions Executive Director Liz Gaulke and the owner of The Donut Shop Gulfport, Jason Tyson.

Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., they are hosting an event, along with WXXV 25 as a partner, at Premium Outlets called Solid Pink Drive Thru.

Residents are asking for donations and in exchange, donors will receive a T-shirt. In addition to The Donut Shop, sponsors include Office Furnture Solutions, Alliston’s Custom Apparel & Awards and Strong Roofing.

The proceeds benefit the Memorial Hospital Foundation to help breast cancer patients at the hospital.

The other event is the Pink Dress Run on Oct. 22 in downtown Gulfport. That event also is sponsored by Chandeleur Brewing Company.
