A Letter from our Executive Director
Cattlemen’s Days Tough Enough To Wear Pink is here for our local community. As our world adjusts to a new reality and comes together to weather through the Coronavirus storm, we are so grateful to be surrounded by the beauty of the Gunnison Valley. Not just the beauty of mother nature, but more importantly, the awe-inspiring beauty of the people who live here!
We could not be the #1 Tough Enough To Wear Pink campaign in the USA without the support of this community and our local business sponsors, they mean the world to us! We want to give back to them during this difficult time, so TETWP has purchased $5,000 worth of gift cards from 60 retail, restaurant and service businesses in Crested Butte and Gunnison who have been affected by the shutdown of our County. These gift cards will be given to the hard-working staff at Gunnison Valley Hospital and the County as a thank you for working tirelessly to keep our community safe.
Cattlemen’s Days Tough Enough To Wear Pink is a magnificent symbol of the extraordinary accomplishments this community can achieve when we take care of each other. Throughout the year the Gunnison Valley rallies with tremendous support for TETWP and brings together all aspects of our community……..the full time & part-time locals, and the visitors. Together we ensure that state of the art breast cancer screenings are available in our community and that those battling all types of cancer in our mountain valley will have the support they need to access treatments, take time to heal, and spend time with loved ones. Together we have helped our local friends and families weather through a cancer diagnosis and treatment, and now together we will get through the COVID19 crisis.
During this time of uncertainty and change, we want to remind all of you to stay STRONG and no matter what challenge we face…TOGETHER WE ARE TOUGH ENOUGH!
Make It a Great Day and stay safe & healthy!
With Gratitude & Hope,
Heidi Sherratt Bogart – Executive Director
We appreciate and love all of our part-time residents, you are a big part of our community and we feel lucky to call you our neighbors and our friends.
