The Northwest Indiana Breast Care Center at Methodist Hospitals is dedicated to making sure women feel their best and most comfortable in their establishment. The Center is hosting its annual Pink Party, an event that is held in October which is breast cancer awareness month and encourages women to step out of the box and visit the Northwest Indiana Breast Care Center.

On October 5, 8-11am, women will gather at the Southlake Campus to celebrate seven years of advancing health in Northwest Indiana. The event will offer unique self-care focused activities such as free chair massages, express manicures, free Lipology consultations, free bra fittings, and a continental breakfast.

Also, if you schedule a mammogram at the Pink Party, you get a “Go Pink” bracelet to take home with you. Everyone has a chance to win a prize and enter the $500 valued State of Mind Spa basket!

To encourage a healthy lifestyle, the Strive for Five 5K Walk/Fun Run will have registration from 8am-9: 30 am and will begin at 9:30 am. The 5K Walk/Fun Run encourages participants to walk or run at their own pace.

Jennifer Sanders, Manager of Northwest Indiana Breast Care Center at Methodist Hospitals & MRI Department explained why the event was established in the first place.

“If you don’t visit the Breast Care Center often or have never been to a breast center, we know this open house experience helps us to create a relationship with our community and helps to reduce any anxiety associated with a visit to a women’s Breast Care Center. ” Sanders explained.

Women have the opportunity to explore the center, touch the machines, see what they look like, and ask staff any questions they have.

“This event acts as an open door for women. It’s a fun day for the staff and an experience for our guests,” Sanders said. “It’s a way to really bring women together.”

“The walk portion promotes that and no matter what, it’s important to stay active. We added the walk to remind you to take care of yourself,” said Sanders.

Northwest Indiana Breast Care Centers at Methodist Hospitals is excited to celebrate and encourage you. Space is limited, so make sure to register today by calling 1-888-909-3627 or visit methodisthospitals.org.
