Pitt County residents paint the town pink for breast cancer awareness

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

Pink is taking over Pitt County and the nation. It’s all in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

In our state alone it is estimated that more than 9,000 women will get breast cancer this year. As the number rises, the need for a cure becomes even more important.

Hundreds of people gathered at Eastern Radiology in Greenville for the 7th annual “Ride For a Cure.” Survivors and their families came together to raise money for breast cancer awareness.

For the second year in a row, car owners decked out their best classic and modern cars for the event. People also got the chance to put their artistic skills to work in a bra decorating competition.

All the money raised stays to support the local community. Event organizers hope to raise $15,000.
