The Valley Goes Pink is a grassroots, community wide effort to increase awareness about breast cancer and the importance of early detection, support the Hewitt Center for Breast Wellness at Griffin Hospital, and to celebrate the charitable spirit of the region’s businesses and organizations.

The campaign invites the Lower Naugatuck Valley and surrounding communities to enjoy a variety of events featuring food, drink and fun for a good cause throughout September and October.
