The 6th Annual Pink Power Ride symbolizes that no one rides the breast cancer journey alone.
When it comes to breast cancer, The Breast Center at Menorah, part of Sarah Cannon at Menorah Medical Center and accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), sends a loud and clear message to patients: no one rides alone on this journey. For the sixth year in a row, Menorah Medical Center—part of HCA Midwest Health, Kansas City’s leading healthcare provider—partners with Gail’s Harley-Davidson for a symbolic 100-mile ride to raise awareness of breast cancer and to support survivors of the disease.
The event takes place this Saturday, Oct. 3, 2015 on the Menorah Medical Center campus (Entry B) with mammograms and a free hot breakfast at 7:30 a.m. Event day registration begins at 8:30 am. Hundreds of riders are expected—many of them dressed in pink—on all makes of motorcycles and the escorted ride will leave from Menorah at 10 a.m. The 100-mile poker run includes the opportunity to win prizes and the chance to win a Harley-Davidson.
The top hand receives a $750 gift certificate to Gail’s Harley-Davidson. Lunch and entertainment will be provided at Gail’s Harley-Davidson following the ride’s conclusion. All proceeds from the ride will benefit the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
Charles Laird, Menorah Medical Center Chief Executive Officer, says the Pink Power Ride signifies the intensive support for breast cancer awareness, education and research and the recognition of survivorship. “The Breast Center at Menorah demonstrates a firm commitment to offer our patients every significant advantage in their battle against breast diseases with advanced technology and some of the best physicians in the area,” says Laird. “The outpouring of community support in events like the Pink Power Ride is vital to people involved in the journey of diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.”
