The Mount Pleasant Business District Authority (BDA) is excited to announce the first Breast Saturday Ever event, that will take place Saturday, October 22, 2022. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer.
For several years, Denise DeSabato, Owner of StukUp Grafix and Valerie Tressler, owner of Val’s Family Styles have decorated the gazebo beautifully in honor of those who have been diagnosed. Honorary signs are created, t-shirts are sold and donation banks are dispersed throughout the business district with all proceeds/donations sent to Glimmer Of Hope Foundation to continue their mission to fund innovative programs, research and technology for breast cancer patients.

This year, The BDA would like to partner and help expand their efforts. We will be hosting a ‘Breast Saturday Ever 5K Color Run/Walk event’. A portion of the proceeds from this event will also benefit the Glimmer Of Hope Foundation. In addition to the 5K we would like to include additional activities, recognizing the businesses and rallying the community in the Breast Saturday Ever! Many businesses already participate by decorating store fronts and/or collecting cash by way of donation jars. .
We will have entertainment on the Diamond and some activities for families and the community. The idea is to create a day to generate awareness, raise donations toward a breast cancer cure and honor the brave cancer fighters; to come together as a community and beyond. We will encourage the community as well as the race participants to grab a free coffee (provided by the BDA) to “Stroll, Shop and Support” an important cause.
