The Pink Plumber Joins The Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer

Friday, August 24th, 2018

The Pink Plumber is always looking for ways to join the fight against breast cancer in our community. We’re excited to join It’s The Journey, Inc. in raising money for breast cancer support at the 2018 Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer.

What is The Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer?

The Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer is a two day walking event dedicated to raising money for breast cancer support for Georgians. The 2-Day walk was started by breast cancer survivor Randi Passoff and her non-profit It’s The Journey, Inc. It’s The Journey, Inc. raises funds for Georgia breast cancer organizations offering support to breast cancer patients across the state. Passoff designed the Walk because she wanted Atlanta to have a breast cancer fundraising event where all the funds raised stayed in the community.

Passoff calls The Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer the “kinder and gentler breast cancer walk.” Instead of walking 60 miles over three days, 2-Day Walk participants walk 20 miles on Saturday and 10 miles on Sunday. Participants stay at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, instead of a tent. 2018 will be It’s The Journey’s 16th annual 2-Day Walk. Over the previous 15 walks, participating walking teams raised $14 million dollars to fund 335 grants. All of that grant money stays in Georgia. 2-Day Walk participants have helped pay for breast cancer education, screening, early detection, support services, continuing care, and more.

Why We Want to Participate

At The Pink Plumber, we have always supported the fight against breast cancer–it’s in our name! The pink ribbon The Pink Plumber uses for our logo represents our commitment to supporting the breast cancer fight in our community. The Pink Plumber regularly donates to breast cancer support. So far, we’ve raised almost $200,000 dollars for breast cancer research.

The Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer is the perfect match for The Pink Plumber! We’re especially happy to support an organization that’s giving back to the Georgia community where we’ve lived and worked for over 50 years. We’ve partnered with the 2-Day Walk every year since 2014, and we couldn’t be more proud to do so again.

How We’re Pitching In

The Pink Plumber will attend the first day of the 2-Day Walk and manage the first of 12 “B’rest Stops.” The B’rest Stops are break areas strategically placed along the walking route. While you’re walking, you can stop by to get a snack, rehydrate, or receive medical attention. You’ll know it’s us because you’ll see The Pink Plumber’s ribbon. Come say hi!

How You Can Get Involved

The 2018 Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer will happen on September 29 and 30th. You can register as a walker, crew, volunteer, or sponsor over at It’s The Journey’s site.

The Pink Plumber Offers More Than Just Plumbing Services—They Give Back For A Good Cause

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

Sure, The Pink Plumber is widely known to provide some of the best plumbing, service and repairs in the industry. But, what you may not have noticed right away is that they are strong advocates for breast cancer research. A portion of all of their profits goes toward fighting against the disease. A recent customer, Donna K, had a lot of positive things to say about The Pink Plumber and her experience with our company. Here’s her story.

What was the main reason for contacting us? “I needed some repairs done on my two upstairs toilets. They were both flushing slowly, and one of the toilets kept running around the clock. My husband is a good handyman and he tried to fix them, but unfortunately they kept giving us issues. That was when I knew it was time to call in the pros! I chose The Pink Plumber because my neighbors have raved about them and their exceptional service.”

Here at The Pink Plumber, we strive ourselves as providing some of the best customer service in the industry. What was your first opinion of us when you spoke with us? “When I first called, your receptionist was extremely friendly and was very concerned about what our plumbing problems were all about. She asked several questions and gathered a lot of information about our plumbing issue. She quickly put together an appointment time for us for later that day. I was shocked that we could get help so quickly, but The Pink Plumber definitely pulled through.”

“The first thing I noticed when the tech, Jack R. arrived, was that he pulled up in a pink truck.” says Donna. “Of course, my first reaction was that as a woman, I was attracted to this company because of the beautiful pink colors. I quickly found out from Jack that they are pro-breast cancer research and donate part of their earnings to breast cancer research and awareness. This really hit home for me, because a close family member of mine is battling the disease.”

What do you want others to know about us, Donna? “I really want to express to others who are looking for a plumbing expert to call you guys first. You are affordable and you were able to tackle my underlying plumbing issue the same day. Now, our toilets and our entire septic drain is running and flowing better than ever.”
