COPY-St. Bernards Pink for Life

A team of women referred to as the Pink Warriors was formed in 1997 to participate in the Arkansas Komen Foundation Race for the Cure.

The inspiration for the Pink Warriors came from a photo essay "A Tribe of Warrior Women" on exhibit at Arkansas State University Museum.  The photo exhibit created at the University of Alabama portrayed women fighting breast cancer with outstanding courage and miraculous strength.

St. Bernards chose the Pink Warriors as a team name to symbolize the courage demonstrated by the women fighting breast cancer in the photo exhibit.
