Pink Aid was established in 2011 to help fund the efforts of local organizations that assist women in need who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Such assistance includes free mammograms, wigs, recovery garments, breast prostheses, transportation to and from treatment, babysitting services, housekeeping services, grocery delivery, family support and more.
In its inaugural year, Pink Aid gave grants to Norwalk Hospitals Smilow Family Breast Health Center and St. Vincents Breast Center. Both organizations offer free mammograms and other services to uninsured and under-insured breast cancer patients in Fairfield County.
The junior varsity football team will also Play 4 Pink Aid on Monday, Oct. 8, in its home game against Oxford High School at 4 pm.
