October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Pink Journey of Lights is an awareness and fund-raising event in Adams County, PA during the month of October, to raise awareness of breast cancer and to raise money for 3 Adams County funds: Pink Out Women's Cancer Fund, Gettysburg Hospital Foundation Adams County Cancer Patient Help Fund, and the Adams County Breast Cancer Coalition Free Mammogram Fund. All of the surrounding communities in Adams County are being challenged to become involved!

The idea behind Pink Journey of Lights is for businesses and homes to decorate with pink lights to raise awareness and show support for the month. Pink Lights may be purchases at area businesses to support this cause. Businesses are encouraged to run specials and promotions throughout the month of October to drive customers into their businesses to raise month for the causes.
