September is here!

Welcome to our new In the Pink staff!  Benivia Forester has joined us downtown at the Hill Breast Center.  We are so fortunate to have found another committed, kind woman to join our staff.

As many of you know, In the Pink, Pan Am Dragon Boat, and Charlene Shirk Productions hosted Jacksonville’s first dragon boat festival,  the Fidelity Investments Jacksonville Dragon Boat Festival on September 21st at the Jacksonville Landing.   We want to thank Fidelity Investments for their confidence in becoming the title sponsor, Charlene Shirk for all of her fundraising and PR work, the festival committee and the In the Pink staff for helping with this festival.  This was definitely a team effort!!!  It was a fabulous, exciting event with 35 teams racing.  For more information, please visit .  This will become In the Pink’s annual signature event, raising much needed funds so they can continue their mission of helping women in the Jacksonville area with everything they need during their journey with cancer.  We will see you at the festival next year on September 20, 2014!  Bring your friends and join the fun!!  For more information on joining any of our teams (breast cancer, co-ed recreational, or co-ed competitive), please visit  We welcome everyone, regardless of athletic ability.  We have coaches that can train you and a great group of paddlers that will welcome you to the boats.  Let’s get in shape, Jacksonville!  Get bit by the dragon!  You can also contact Marty Millard at for more information.
