Tour de Pink this Saturday morning at Perimeter Mall

October 17, 2009
Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody, GA

In Metro Atlanta alone, almost 500 young women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. The Young Survival Coalition (YSC) is the premier international organization dedicated to increasing the quality and quantity of life for young women with breast cancer.
YSC Atlanta is one of the oldest and largest YSC affiliates serving 11 counties in the metro area. The funds raised by the Tour de Pink will help us focus on education and outreach opportunities and provide peer-to-peer support for newly diagnosed young women.
Young Survival Coalition's Tour de Pink is Atlanta's newest and most exciting charity bike event, modeled after our successful national ride. Tour de Pink has raised over a million dollars for young women affected by breast cancer. The 2009 ride is more than an event for cyclists; it's a chance to honor survivors, raise awareness in the community and support important local programs for young women with breast cancer.
The first-ever Atlanta Tour de Pink promises something for everyone, from short family rides and a survivor loop to cycle routes from 1 to 100 miles. Following the ride, participants and spectators will have a chance to mingle and explore our expo area, showcasing local services, vendors, food, entertainment and family fun.
When: Saturday, October 17, 2009. Staggered starts beginning at 7:00 a.m.

  • Rides ranging in length from 1 to 100 miles
  • Family Ride
  • Survivor Loop
  • Complimentary Food and Beverage
  • Expo Area at Start/Finish Line
Community Expo: Join us for a family friendly event within the event! While you wait for our riders to cross the finish line, enjoy food, music, children's activities and exhibits by our sponsors and other local nonprofit organizations.

Event Proceeds: Proceeds from the event will be used by Young Survival Coalition's Atlanta Affiliate to help raise awareness for young women affected by breast cancer as well as provide resources and support to young survivors and their families.
