Worship in Pink
2020 Worship in Pink Weekend
October 3-4, 2020
Check back August 1st to register for your Worship in Pink outreach kit!
Worship in Pink (WIP) Weekend is a great opportunity for churches, mosques, synagogues and other places of worship throughout north central Alabama to spread the life-saving message of early detection and honor their communities’ survivors. Groups are encouraged to make the day, or weekend, a celebration of survivors and co-survivors. Some groups host a special luncheon for survivors, encourage their congregation to wear pink, or invite survivors to speak about their experiences!
While an official Worship in Pink Weekend is set every year, groups are welcome to save their Worship in Pink outreach kit to use at any time during the year. Please note that due to the overwhelming popularity of this program, Worship in Pink outreach kits are first come-first served, are limited to one free kit per group, and can only be requested during the Worship in Pink Weekend registration period.
Participating organizations will receive a free Worship in Pink outreach kit which includes:
- A Worship in Pink Ambassador toolkit containing a suggested script to use during services, a sample bulletin announcement, and programming guide. A fundraising guide is available online, the link can be found below.
- 50 copies of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Screening and Follow-Up Tests brochure and 50 Take Action bookmarks
- Materials to make 50 pink ribbon pins
- 50 exclusive Worship in Pink fans
**Please Note: By registering for the Worship in Pink Ambassador’s Kit, your group is agreeing to participate in an official Susan G. Komen North Central Alabama program and to present only Komen-approved breast health messaging during your Worship in Pink event. This includes the information presented by non-medical professional speakers who may speak during a Worship in Pink program that you host. If you would like to have a Komen-approved and trained speaker to participate in your event, please contact us at 205-263-1700 as soon as possible so that we may work to schedule one of our Komen Community Representatives for your event.**
If you have questions about how your place of worship can get involved, contact our Director of Outreach and Grants, Deanna Fowler, at dfowler@komenNCalabama.org or 205.263.1706.
Download your free material today! While the Worship in Pink Ambassador’s Toolkit will include handouts of breast health educational materials, they will be in limited supply.
Additional brochures can be downloaded from the national Komen Educational Material Virtual Library – these PDFs can be used to make copies for your place of worship!
Below you will find electronic versions of educational material for your event that can be downloaded and printed, as well as copies of the WIP Ambassador Toolkit and the new fundraising guide.
