The message from Meridian Health is simple. Get your annual mammography. And the goal of Pink Your Ride Day is to take that message to the streets of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

I was proud to serve as a judge at Pink Your Ride Day at Monmouth Mall this past Saturday, along with the President of Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Steve Littleson, and Regional President of Jersey Shore University Medical Center and Riverview Medical Center Tim Hogan.

A big congratulations to all the participants who "pinked their ride" to help remind everyone of the importance of getting an annual mammography. There were some really creative entries, and everyone did a great job of finding a unique way to get the word out.
