This is a great way to purchase pins for those that have helped you get through your diagnosis and treatments. The pins also make great stocking stuffers, staff gifts, secret Santa gifts, etc. The new Co-Survivor pins will make great gifts and stocking stuffers for your caregivers.

I have all sizes available (small-2XL) in most of our pink ribbon shirts including Camo (comes to a size Men’s 2XL- which is like a Women’s 3XL), Tye Dye (in pink or black), Faith Burn Out and Gradient T. .

I also have great long sleeve shirts available for the cold winter months in sizes S-2XL including Pink 2fer (also available in black with white sleeves), Pink V-neck, Brown 2fer, and Brown varsity (also available in black) .These shirts are great quality and so soft.

   The popular men’s shirt-Tough Guys Wear Pink, is now back in stock in all sizes Small through 3XL. It is also available for men in White (limited number available) and in a boys in black size XS (4-5) and Small (6-8). 

Armies have been a popular seller this fall and they are great for the Avon 2-Day and Susan G. Komen 3-Day walks and training. I have all colors in stock. These are great for your walking teams! I was so cold at my 3-Day walk in Dallas last month that I wore a pair in black on my legs and my white pair on my arms!  If you have an upcoming Relay for Life or Race for the Cure walk- these would be great for you too.

Pink Wings News:

I completed every mile of my 12th 3-Day 60 mile walk in Dallas in November.  It was an amazing walk. It was so cold on Day 1 that there was frost on the ground! As I dropped off my bag with the gear and tent trucks, I finally met Mike Pink Shoes Wingo. This is an amazing man who has been very active in the fight against cancer. We have emailed and face booked for over 5 years- but this was our first time meeting in person. Macintosh HD:Users:czinszer:Pictures:iPhoto Library:Masters:2011:11:28:20111128-111945:IMG_0692.JPG

I walked with Pink Wings teammates Lori and Diane from Chicago. Macintosh HD:Users:czinszer:Pictures:iPhoto Library:Masters:2011:11:30:20111130-084956:PB060145.JPGI also spent much of Day 1 and Day 2 walking with Barbara Jo and new friend Neha. Macintosh HD:Users:czinszer:Pictures:iPhoto Library:Masters:2011:11:29:20111129-140823:CIMG3684.JPGBarbara Jo is a legend. She is 73 and has completed over 125 long distance walks and raised over $1 million dollars in the fight against breast cancer.

The Dallas 3-Day had 2800 walkers and we raised over $7.1 million dollars!

There will be a Pink Wings team crewing the Chicago 3-Day in 2012 and also walking in either San Fran, Philly or Twin Cities. Please contact me if you would like to join our team.
