Warwick dons pink to spread breast cancer awareness

The mayor of Warwick is talking about pink, pink and more pink as part of the village's new program to spread breast cancer awareness.

Yesterday's "Passionately Pink for the Cure" program was all part of Breast Cancer Awareness Day, as shops and businesses in the village donned pink, along with town officials and organizers.

Students in the local school district volunteered their time to paint the pink artwork for the village shops and businesses as volunteers handed out breast cancer bows, pins, bracelets and flyers to spread the message.

"I think it's a really big thing for everyone to be aware of," said organizer Kim Corkum. "The earlier we get this detection done, the more lives we are able to save."
