Looking back on Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As October — Breast Cancer Awareness Month — draws to a close, we look back on some of the events that help support patients and research at UF Health. Thank you for thinking pink!

On Oct. 4, participants gathered at the Cancer & Genetics Research Complex for the Pink Pumpkin Pedal-Off, a charity bike ride to honor those affected by breast cancer and to raise money for breast cancer research at the UF Health Cancer Center. The Gainesville-based nonprofit group Collaboration of Scientists for Critical Research in Biomedicine, or CSCRB Inc., hosts the event.

On Oct. 18, the Levy County Horse Club held the 14th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Trailride in Goethe State Forest to benefit breast cancer patients at UF Health Cancer Center. For more information, visit www.levycountyhorseclub.com".
