Support shined in shades of pale pink, magenta, and smiling faces on Saturday morning, as scores of community members came together for the third annual Pink Ribbon Run in Riverton. The area’s biggest breast cancer awareness and support fundraiser was a smashing success. 

“This means the world to me,” noted special honoree Manuela Twitchell of the big crowd. As a survivor of breast cancer, she noted that it’s a journey for everyone who has been touched by it. “It changed my life,” she said. “We learn to see the beauty of the day, and know we’re on the path of joy and hope.” 

Rocky Mountain Oncology’s Marty Brammer donned a pink tutu, and introduced Twitchell as “the sweetest soul you ever want to meet.” Also decked out in pink was SageWest CEO John Whiteside; Wyoming Cancer Initiative Director Kelli Morgan was also in attendance.
