Pinking of You - Sonoma County

An innovative new digital campaign to show emotional support for those affected by breast cancer. Individuals are encouraged to get friends & loved ones together to create meaningful video messages to let those affected know they are “Pinking” of them in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Similar to the viral Ice Bucket Challenge, which raised $115 million for the ALS foundation, “Pinking of You” will focus on sharing these messages through social media to raise awareness. A new mobile app is donating their platform to be used in the campaign. VideoFizz makes it easy for individuals to record their emotional support videos, donate & share with recipients. The app automatically stitches multiple recorded messages together allowing friends & families to create montage videos full of support.

100% of all proceeds will go directly to the ABCF’s lifesaving programs, which provide financial assistance for breast cancer screenings & diagnostic tests to the uninsured & underserved regardless of age or gender.

Organizations & individuals can visit the app store or the Google play store to download VideoFizz & begin making free breast cancer support videos.

Pimps of Joytime - Rohnert Park

When it comes to throwing a party, the Pimps of Joytime raise the bar with swagger to spare. Over the past decade, the group's grassroots following mobilized from the underground club scene in NY to sell out historic venues like the Fillmore in SF & showcase at festivals across the US & Europe. With more than 1 million Spotify plays to date, it seems word truly does spread to the wise. And when you pair high­-caliber musicianship with rhythm & groove as universally enticing as it is unconventional, there's no denying the dance floor.

SOMO Concerts showcase LOCAL Artists, Vendors, Food & Drinks to create a unique “pop-up festival” atmosphere.

3K/relatively flat course around town
10K/around Fitch Mountain with some river views. The “Gut” wrenching part of this course will be the 12.5K.

For the first time prior to it’s official opening runners will be able to go up a fire road to nearly the top of Fitch Mountain with views of the city & river to the south of town.

Finish up with a Pancake Breakfast at the Bear Republic Brewing Company served by some of our local Heroes.

Skip Brand from the Healdsburg Running Company states “GutBuster is a truly unique experience & a first time ever to have an in-town trail run with amazing views, live music & the best brewery breakfast & Racer 5 finish!
All for a great cause - Stomach Cancer Awareness.”

You can help by registering for the fun run/walk. Your dollars will be donated to the nonprofits No Stomach for Cancer & Sonoma County’s Ceres Community Project.
No Stomach for Cancer: Click here for details
-supports cancer research provides education & awareness of stomach cancer. One fact being that stomach cancer is the 3rd most common cause of cancer deaths in the world, but receives very little funding from the National Cancer Institute. Stomach cancer is hard to detect & is typically diagnosed in late stages.

Ceres Community Project: Click here for details
-promotes “Food as Medicine” by providing primarily low-income people struggling with serious illness with free & home-delivered nourishing organic meals, education & caring support of community.

The driving force behind this effort is Healdsburg resident Allen Losh, our son, husband, father, brother, veteran, firefighter & friend to many, lost his life to stomach cancer at the young age of 30. He received the caring meals & warm support of the Ceres Community Project & No Stomach for Cancer during his battle with stomach cancer.
