Manalapan Township is Manalapink for the month of May 2017 in an effort to remind women to get their annual mammograms, which is the best defense against breast cancer. Each May, towns in Monmouth and Ocean counties join Meridian Health’s Paint the Town Pink effort to raise awareness of the importance of an annual mammography.

Business Owners…If you are interested in getting involved and hosting a Pink Event in the month of May please contact [email protected] We will put a list of events and participating businesses on our website.

Residents of Manalapink…It’s Time to Pink Your Houses! Support the Importance of Mammography by Decorating Your House Pink. Email [email protected] with your pink houses and we will post it on the Manalapan Township facebook page. Each participating home will receive a “Paint the Town Pink” Certificate from the Mayor.

Support from our businesses and community volunteers is what makes
Paint the Town Pink so successful.

By participating in the “Paint the Town Pink” campaign each town helps to raise awareness for the importance of early detection of breast cancer, and encourages community involvement. Paint the Town Pink is a fantastic way for the whole community to come together in support of breast cancer prevention and awareness.

There are so many ways to Paint the Town Pink and everyone can be involved whether you are an individual, business, group of friends, company, school or club.

Join us for the month of May in Manalapink!

More information will be posted on our website and facebook page throughout the Month.
