"We’re trying to get in this one year what we’ve gotten in the last two years, so the push is much greater," Winter said. "It’s a little ambitious but we’re going to do it."

The slogan this year is "Brave Enough to Wear Pink."

The emphasis this year has been on using social networking to get the word out in addition to banners and a lot of flyers all over town.

"Before we started hitting the social networks, we had about a 1,000 visits to our page a day and now we’re a little over 11,000 a day," Coffey said.

The shirts cost $20 for all sizes, which include small through triple extra large.

According to Winter, the foundation does many things to help people fighting cancer.

"They do a lot of things, but one of the things that they do do is take care of the day-to-day things that people with cancer are going through such as last year one person didn’t have the gas to get to their chemotherapy sessions, so they helped out with the gas, people who had to get mammograms done and others who needed prescriptions," Winter said. "So, there are a lot of day-to-day things that people with cancer have to deal with that they’re trying to help with."
