Organization Overview, Mission and Vision

Founded in 2012, by the late Vanessa Robinson, Pink Strydes, Incorporated is a grassroots, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization established to reduce the risks and ease the effects of breast cancer in women and families of underserved populations in Southeast Florida. Pink Strydes, Incorporated fulfills its mission through awareness, education, empowerment; and by providing treatment and medication co-pays, assisting patients with personal care assistance, and assistance with daily living activities.

To help fiscally support its mission, Pink Strydes, Incorporated produces and hosts signature programs, projects and productions to educate and entertain the general public and underserved audiences to drive and change health behavior to fulfill its vision. The main objective of these fundraising events and activities is to raise awareness and funds to help transform the health behaviors of the general and underserved, breast cancer populations in Southeast Florida, by promoting public awareness, early breast cancer screening, accessible breast health and wellness education, critical financial assistance by providing treatment and medication co-pays, assisting patients with personal care assistance, and assistance with daily living activities.

The vision of Pink Strydes, Incorporated is to implement sustainable initiatives that will reduce inequalities in breast cancer incidence and outcomes, and enhance quality of life and experience of health care. Moreover, Pink Strydes’ main objective is to collaborate with local businesses, community organizations, and healthcare agencies to help women and families of underserved populations overcome the challenges and obstacles of reducing the risks of breast cancer. Pink Strydes, Incorporated has made great “strydes” towards its vision, but there is much more that needs to be done, especially here in Southeast Florida.

Unfortunately, Pink Strydes’ founder and visionary, Vanessa Robinson, passed away on April 23, 2014. The Board of Directors of Pink Strydes, Incorporated continues to honor her love, her life and legacy and other brave women like her as it takes “strydes” to make a difference for other women and their families in the fight to eradicated breast cancer. Pink Strydes, Incorporated is committed to making the burden a lessor one.
