What Is Faith Wears Pink?
Faith Wears Pink is a Christian based breast cancer support group and 501-c3 non-profit organization. Founded by Christine Runge (Weiss) after her personal journey with the disease, she realized there was a true need for the emotional, spiritual and tangible support of the women afflicted with breast cancer. With a private Facebook page, support is readily available at any time of the day or night. Currently there are over 325 women who understand and are going through this battle, or have already gone through the journey themselves. By acknowledging the harsh realities of this journey, we diligently pray for every need, as well as personally minister on a “street level” day-to-day basis, which is so vastly needed. Scripture based advice combined with continuous lasting encouragement and meeting the tangible needs of these warriors is the true foundation and mission of Faith Wears Pink. The donations received are used to directly support these beautiful ladies in a variety of ways, which include:
- Distribution of Jesus Calling devotionals (in pink, of course!)
- Handmade Chemo blankets that are given to the women to keep
- Social events are hosted at no cost to the women
- Educational events with special guest speakers are hosted at no cost
It is with Christine’s faith and ability to recognize the needs of these women that moves donors to contribute to her cause. Although there are many breast cancer organizations that can be donated to, Faith Wears Pink directly and immediately supports and impacts the women who are part of the group.
