A bridge and a bus will be pretty in pink next month to focus on breast cancer.
At 6 p.m. on Jan. 12, the Royal Palm Bridge — the “middle” bridge at Okeechobee Boulevard — will light up in pink, in partnership with Susan G. Komen South Florida. Just before that, Palm Tran will debut, for the fifth year, one of its buses that’s been wrapped in black, with pink lettering providing a message about breast cancer awareness. The bus, which operates on Palm Tran Route 1 — along U.S. 1 from Boca Raton to Palm Beach Gardens — will be wrapped for three to four months, Palm Tran said.
It’s all in advance of the Jan. 28 Komen South Florida Race for the Cure, which hopes to raise $1 million.
Komen South Florida says the bridge will stay lit into mid-February.
