Seaquarium launches ‘Hopetober’ to aid breast cancer awareness

By Michelle Palomino….
Miami Seaquarium will go pink this October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as it welcomes its guests with the opportunity to make a contribution to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and save 50 percent on general admission.

The park also will encourage its visitors to get involved in other ways by transforming several park locations with the iconic pink color. The offer starts Sept. 26 and continues until Oct. 31. To participate, guests may visit www.facebook.com/MiamiSeaquarium for a donation form.

“Hopetober is a new campaign initiative aimed at creating awareness and funds for breast cancer research,” said Andrew Hertz, Seaquarium general manager. “We’re excited to be joining forces with Susan G. Komen for the Cure and its missions in education and research funding.”

Susan G. Komen for the Cure is dedicated to saving lives and ending breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures. Since its inception in 1996, the Miami/Fort Lauderdale Race For the Cure and the Affiliate have raised approximately $12 million and reached hundreds of thousands of women and men through educational outreach.
