Tour de Pink
The people of Kirksey are made up of more than just architects, designers, marketers, etc. We have a strong sense of community involvement and a drive to give back to the community that serves us every day. For this reason and many others is why Kirksey participates in Tour de Pink, the first Texas bike ride solely benefiting breast cancer. This year was Tour de Pink's 9th anniversary and Kirksey's 9th year to participate. The folks of Kirksey provided volunteer services at a pit stop equipped with beverages, food, goodwill, cheering, and all around support for the riders. Tour de Pink is a wonderful organization that helps by providing mobile mammography units for the community as a way to connect with patients. Funds also provide mammograms and further diagnostic testing and improved equipment and processes. In 2012, Pink Ribbons Project produced $470,000 that went to programs for breast health screening, treatment, education, and support services. The bonus is there is still time to donate! You have till October 15th to make a donation and be the change you want to see in the world. Kirksey will continue our involvement and hopes you are inspired to give back as well - whether it's Tour de Pink or any other organization that benefits the people of our community. Here are some photos from the inspiring and fun-filled day!
