Pink Boot Campaign 2018

** Please Note This Campaign Has Completed **

Thank you for all your donations in October. Your donations helped us to raise over $10,000 towards our 2019 goal of $150,000.

Some Locations May No Longer Have A Boot. If you would like to donate please visit our donation page.


October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Taunia Oechslin Girls Night Out Foundation has launched “Give Breast Cancer the Boot”. With the help of this fundraising effort, our goal is to raise $150,000 or more through April 2019 – and ultimately a total of $1 MILLION, raised and donated
to the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center, since the inaugural Girls Night Out in 2007!


(1) Dozens of bright pink boots, used as centerpieces at the 2018 event, have been placed throughout the Johnstown area.
