Lighting the Way with Pink Celebration Ceremony

Lighting Ceremony - Saturday, October 27, 2018 at 11:30am

To celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, we are lighting the entrance of University Hospital with pink lights.

Everyone knows someone who has been affected by breast cancer, someone who has given them motivation to live life to the fullest, spread light, and wear pink. Reserve a pink light to celebrate that person in your life who represents your pink light.

Pink lights will illuminate the ceiling at the entrance of University Hospital during the month of October. Buy one pink light for $10, three for $25, one strand of 100 for $100 or a grid for $500. Purchase a light or just make a donation online, or call (608) 890-9957. The donations you make will help our less fortunate cancer patients relieve some of the financial stress of this disease.

Everyone is invited to attend a special indoor celebratory ceremony on Saturday, October 27, 2018 at 11:30 am immediately following the Carbone Race for Research 5K Run/Walk. The ceremony will take place in the Health Sciences Learning Center, located at 750 Highland Avenue, Madison, next to University Hospital. The event will feature Dr. Lee Wilke, director of the UW Health Breast Center. An outdoor lighting ceremony concludes the event at the main entrance of University Hospital.
