Pink on the Links

128 golfers gathered at the Omni Bedford Springs Resort Friday for the 12th Annual “Pink on the Links” golf outing.

Organizers said Saturday they’re still counting the money, but that they’re expecting to raise about $10,000.

The money will be donated to Girls Night Out Altoona Inc. to benefit various hospitals and organizations in the region with breast cancer awareness and research.

Marc McKillop has taken part in the event for the past 12 years and says he does it for his mom who is a breast cancer survivor.

“She’s been battling for more years now than we can count, about 25 years. She’s a cancer survivor herself, strongest member of the family,” Marc says.

Amy Mearkle is the Pink on the Links organizer and says she’s glad they could still have the fundraiser due to COVID-19, because cancer never stops.

“Covid didn’t stop cancer, or the need for research, or the need for education. We were happy to still be here and do it safely,” Amy says.
