Play for P.I.N.K. (Prevention, Immediate diagnosis, New technology, Knowledge) turns play into serious support. To speed advances in breast cancer detection, treatment and survivorship, the organization supports thousands of volunteers nationwide as they raise funds for research through sporting and lifestyle events. Their efforts raise $4.6 million annually, and 100% of that goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the highest-rated breast cancer organization in the U.S., with an A+ rating from Charity Watch.
