The City of Prattville is asking all breast cancer survivors to join in a celebration of survival!! In conjunction with the Montgomery Advertiser’s River Region campaign for breast cancer awareness, the City of Prattville will be gathering around the Historical Fountain at Heritage Park on Friday, October 8th at 7am, to “turn the fountain pink” in acknowledgment of local breast cancer survivors.

Local survivors will release pink balloons as a symbol of “letting go” of the cancer, as Mayor Jim Byard Jr. and survivors turn the water in the fountain pink. The city is excited to have this opportunity to show support to breast cancer fighters, to admire the survivors and honor the taken, while encouraging hope and breast cancer awareness. “This is our 2nd year to hold this event and we are hoping for an even bigger turnout,” said Special Events Director Kellie Cook. “We invite everyone from our area to come out early that morning and celebrate with other survivors.”

The Montgomery Advertiser’s entire newspaper will be pink on Friday, as well. The date is also being promoted as “Wear Pink Day.”

For more information, or if you are a local breast cancer survivor and would like to take place in the event, please call the City of Prattville’s Special Events office at (334) 358-0297.
