Together, Working to Help those In Pink
Team W.H.I.P. is a registered 501c3 non profit organization (WHIP) established in October 2015.
Team W.H.I.P. services a breast health and caregivers community. Our efforts are reach those who can identify and serve our communities with purpose and resources. W.H.I.P. (originally Walking to Honor those In Pink) was established after a breast cancer walk was organized in October, 2015. The walk began in West Point, Georgia walking into Lanett, Alabama, and returning to the John D. Hoggs Pavillion in West Point, Georgia. With an overwhelming response to have a walk annually, it was also stated to begin a local support group. At the first meeting, majority breast survivors, Walking to Honor those In Pink migrated to Working to Help those In Pink. In 2016, a board was established and W.H.I.P. was connected and partnered with The Gene Machine of Auburn University (August 2016).
Team W.H.I.P. , located in Lanett, Alabama, services Chambers and Lee Counties of Alabama; West Point of Harris and Troup Counties of Georgia.
The organization strives to provide educational, emotional and social support through an outreach of programs and events with an aid of community-based partnerships. This is made possible with financial contributions from sponsorships and donations.
