goPINK Project

 

goPINK 2020 is all quacked up!

In 2020, we're finding creative ways to raise critical funds to support cancer patients in our community. Anyone can participate in the goPINK Duck Race from the comfort and safety of home—just make a donation or form a team to enter the duck race!

On race day, rubber ducks are tossed into a body of water. The first ducks to reach the finish line win prizes. Plus, the top fundraising teams are eligible to win additional prizes. 

Watch the Duck Race - Today!

The Duck Race will be live streamed on the goPINK Project Facebook page on today at 3 p.m. Simply tune in to enjoy the race and cheer on your duck(s)!

About goPINK

  • What is goPINK?
    The goPINK Project was founded in 2010 by EG Salon as a way to raise funds for the Middlesex Health Cancer CenterSince then, donations have totaled more than $263,000 and helped more than 1,400 patients receive free integrative medicine therapy. More than 40 local salons, businesses, and schools and hundreds of community members have participated in goPINK.
  • What does my donation support?
    The funds raised through goPINK help cover the cost of integrative medicine for cancer patients. Integrative medicine (IM) is used alongside cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation. IM supports the whole person—body, mind, and spirit—and helps patients cope with the side effects of treatment, as well as focus on their overall wellbeing.

    Due to COVID-19, the Cancer Center has suspended most integrative medicine services for the safety of both patients and practitioners. Acupuncture is currently available, and as soon as it is safe to do so, we will resume offering massage therapy, Reiki, reflexology, yoga, and more.
Thank you to our 2020 sponsors: Connecticut Oncology Group, RAM Radiology and Women's Health CT.
