AUSTIN, MN — The bar is being raised when it comes to cancer research in Austin.
The ‘Paint the Town Pink’ initiative announced their goal to raise 150,000 dollars in 2014.
Last year, they raised more than 115,000 dollars that went to the Hormel Insitute to support its world-renowned breast cancer research.
Organizers say they are confident they can reach their new goal.
“We talked about our new fundraising goal, which will be 150,000 dollars for 2014,” Paint the Town Pink Director Kathi Finley said. “And, I’m very confident with the continued support of the Austin community and hopefully, surrounding communities we can get involved, we will easily exceed that number again. “
Finley adds they would like to see other area communities join in the fight against breast cancer.
If you or your community would like to join the 2014 event, you can contact Kathi Finley at 1-507-460-0259 or by e-mail at: GoPTTP@gmail.com.
