Our Mission

The Pink Santa Hat Movement offers a beacon of hope to educators, public safety, and medical professionals navigating the challenges of breast cancer. Through care packages, monthly mental health meetings, and an annual retreat, we provide opportunities to uplift spirits and foster fellowship, ensuring those who've battled or are fighting cancer find support, strength, and renewed hope.

Our Vision

Spreading Joy, One Pink Hat, One Heart at a Time! Founder Elise Bethel bravely battled Stage IV Metastatic breast cancer from 2015 until her passing in 2018. Her enduring wish was to support others facing similar struggles. The Pink Santa Hat Movement carries forward Elise's vision—recognizing that cancer affects entire families. Now, we offer educators, public safety, and medical professionals fighting breast cancer an opportunity for hope, support, and fellowship, uplifting spirits in their courageous journey.

"I will never ever forget this weekend and the way that you all embraced us and showered us with goodness from the very start to the very end."
