Ride for Pink is the largest fundraiser for WNC Advocacy, a community oriented non-profit group of small business owners giving back to their community by helping under-served women through raising funds for early detection and education in their fight against breast cancer.

This year, founder Bob LaBracio hopes to raise at least $10,000, funds that are donated directly to the Haywood County Health Department to provide breast cancer education, free mammograms and screenings to qualifying women in Haywood County.
