Look for hope this fall at Estes Park! Families with breast cancer will travel to Estes Park as part of the Little Pink Houses of Hope Retreat Program. The non-profit organization is offering a free week-long vacation to breast cancer patients and their families to give them the opportunity to reconnect and celebrate life in a relaxing environment. Estes Park is the newest location added to their 22-city program.
As part of the retreat experience, all activities and services are provided free of charge so families can focus on spending quality time together. The retreat at Estes Park is made possible through the generosity of the local community and in particular the support of Ponderosa Realty who have reached out to secure housing for all attending families from their ownership group. “When we heard about the life-changing experience that Little Pink provides, we had to get involved! The generosity of our owners has been incredible and we are thrilled that our business is part of such a great experience,” said Ponderosa chief executive Seth Smith.
Throughout the week, families can enjoy a variety of activities, including a partnership with the YMCA of the Rockies, Estes Park Recreation Center, Wildside 4X4 excursions and more. Local restaurants like Ed’s Cantina, Bird & Jim and Rock Inn at Mountain Tavern are stepping up to support the event by providing meals for families.
“We love how the local community uses their gifts, talents and resources to support our breast cancer families during this incredibly difficult time in the cancer journey,” said Little Pink Founder Jeanine Patten-Coble. . “We encourage anyone who wants to get involved and help create an amazing week for families to reach out and be part of our local Pink team!”
Little Pink Houses of Hope was founded by Jeanine Patten-Coble, a breast cancer survivor who started the organization after noticing the lack of services that exist for the families of survivors. Little Pink was recently named the 2021 National Breast Cancer Nonprofit of the Year.
