Pink Ribbon Path Project

The Pink Ribbon Path Project was a public art project sponsored by the Hurwitz Breast Cancer Fund, Frederick Arts Council and The Frederick Giving Project that debuted in October 2012.

The project was made possible through the generosity of our sponsors and talented local artists.  The goal of the project was to increase breast cancer awareness and generate much needed funds to support the FMH Hurwitz Breast Cancer Fund and the Frederick Arts Council.

For photos of the ribbons, please view the Pink Ribbon Path Gallery.
