Honoring the special people in our life is an
honor of it’s own. Maybe that’s why the Tribute Ceremony is
always a very special highlight of the weekend. We gather at
J.B. Hunt park near dusk on Saturday evening. After announcing
and giving out awards for contests, we turn our focus towards a
deeper meaning for the weekend. We’ll announce the names
of these mothers, daughters, wives, cousins, grandmothers,
sisters and other cherished friends that have fought against
breast cancer. When their names are read aloud, pink balloons
will be released as we watch them go into the sky. Some of
these tributes may have lost their battle. Many have struggled
beyond belief. The fight still remains for those not stolen by
breast cancer and for those of us that are here to hold them up
~ for now and for a beautiful PINK future free from breast
These, along with names brought to us during our
event weekend, are the names of the loved ones that have been
brought to us by those who know them, respect them, worry about
them, care about them, love them...and fight with them.
Please join us at JB Hunt Park as we lift these
balloons in their honor and come together in our hopes for a
cure. Your $5 contribution to Komen will include your honoree’s
name in this ceremony plus have them added to the Tribute page
of our Pitch for the Cure website, where it will reside until
our 2014 event. Please see a PFTC STAFF member at a T-Shirt
booth at your park prior to 5PM on Saturday.
Because not all parks can take part in this
event, a symbolic set of pink balloons will be released from
each park on Saturday evening.
Please enter your honoree as early as possible, so that we can be
fully prepared during the event.
