Pink Tour 2013

So… I’m back! After over 6 months a year two years on hiatus. Wheeee!

What have I been up to? I’ve never blogged about it specifically, but I’m so excited to share this with the world, or whoever reads this sad little blog. In March 2013, my first client project was the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s Pink Tour. My work was mostly office-based for the first few months, but the tour officially kicked off in June. From June 12th until October 31st, 2013, I traveled with a small team of health educators across Ontario on a 50′ retrofitted pink bus… for a total of 17,000+ kilometres. What craziness!! But in the best way possible :)

The inaugural tour in 2012 was hugely successful, so the CBCF decided to organize it one more time in Ontario. The purpose of the tour was to educate women on how to be ‘breast aware’ through interactive learning tools on board the bus. We made stops at events/festivals, community centres, sponsors, workplaces with a large number of women, and much much more. As the program coordinator, my work involved around the logistics related to the tour and managing the girls on board.
