The importance of early detection of breast cancer is an issue that hits home to many of our team members at Rutter Mills. That’s why we are happy to partner with The Pink Ride, a local non-profit group on a mission to make access to breast cancer screening and treatment available to everyone in our community.
The Pink Ride October 9th, 2022
For the 13th year, The Pink Ride will take place Sunday, October 9th, 2022. Kicking off at 11:30 AM from Big Woody’s in Chesapeake, the ride travels to AJ Gators sports bar on Witchduck Rd. in Virginia Beach, where local bands will ramp up the party to raise money for this important cause. Rutter Mills team members will be on hand to give out pink t-shirts, backpacks, and other branded swag to show our support for The Pink Ride’s mission.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month Hits Home
Rutter Mills has been partnering with The Pink Ride to bring free mammograms to communities in Virginia Beach and Norfolk. For our firm, the issue is a personal one. We have several members of our team and their loved ones who fought the deadly disease. Managing partner, Brother Rutter experienced the impact cancer has when his wife, Meredith battled breast cancer twice.
“I know first-hand how important early detection is. For my wife, finding it early gave treatment options a better chance to be successful.”-Brother Rutter, Managing Partner, Rutter Mills
You Don’t Need a Motorcycle to Support The Pink Ride
Sunday’s event has something for everyone. From good food to great music, the party at AJ Gators is a great way to spend the afternoon while helping bring awareness and treatment to Hampton Roads. The Pink Ride will also hold live and silent auctions, along with a raffle for a 2022 Harley Davidson motorcycle. For information on the event or to buy tickets, visit ThePinkRide.org.
