Knott's Berry Farm is teaming up with Susan G. Komen Orange County
for the third year to raise money for breast cancer awareness, services and research.
From now until March 18th visitors can purchase special "Pink Tickets"
for theme park admission and limited edition "pink" t-shirt.
Did you know that in Orange County, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer?
When I first shared about Knott's For the Cure two years ago, I talked about how I had
one friend that had just beat breast cancer and I wondered who in my life it would
affect next. About a month later I found out it would be my dear friend, Jaime.
She was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer.
She has fought like a banshee and beat back the beast and I'm hoping that Komen
founder Nancy Brinker will be able to keep her promise to her sister,
Susan G. Komen, and end breast cancer forever.
Since the Komen's founding in 1982, the survival rate for breast cancer
has risen dramatically. This is thanks to the funding of new research
and treatments that detect breast cancer in its earliest and most curable stage.
Susan G. Komen Orange County provides mammograms for uninsured women
and works with other organizations to bring breast health information to
people throughout the country.
Over the last 2 years that Knott's and Komen have partnered for
Knott's For the Cure, they have been able to raise $230k!
Knott's vice president and general manager Raffi Kaprelyan said of the partnership,
"We couldn’t be more proud of the unwavering support our park guests,
Komen Orange County and employees showed throughout the impactful promotion.
We are looking forward to coming together with Komen Orange County once again
to advance women’s health and raise money and awareness to fight breast cancer.”
I am so thankful for the advancements in breast cancer research and treatment
that Susan G. Komen has helped bring about.
THE "PINK" DETAILS:
From February 4th-March 18th you can purchase "Pink Tickets" for
theme park admission at www.knotts.com.
A portion of the "Pink Tickets" proceeds will benefit Susan G. Komen Orange County.
Guests entering the theme park during the time of the promotion will be greeted by
specially themed "pink" decor and special rides and attractions will glow pink!
