You’re the one that I want! Star of the movie musical “Grease,” Grammy award winner Olivia Newton-John is getting her walking shoes ready for a special event taking place in downtown Indianapolis.
Newton-John will join Indianapolis Head Coach Chuck Pagano and his wife Tina to lead the Pink and Blue for Two “walk within the Mini-Marathon” on May 3.
They will take part in the Finish Line 500 Festival 5K and walk to raise awareness for Pink and Blue for Two. The Coles team is helping promote the event and the cause with Newton-John’s nephew, Emerson, a race car driver.
Pink and Blue for Two’s mission is threefold:
- Raise awareness of both breast and prostate cancers and their similarities
- Urge couples and family members to remind one another of annual screenings
- Educate people on the importance of overall mind, body and spirit wellness
Coach Pagano was forced to take a leave of absence from the Indianapolis Colts after being diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow cells. He beat cancer after treatment and grueling rounds of chemotherapy.
“When I was approached to take part in the Pink and Blue for Two Walk in Indy, I was honored,” Pagano said. “With the support of my family, the team and fans everywhere, I beat cancer. The Pink and Blue for Two campaign embraces that spirit.”
“I am thrilled to have Coach Chuck and his wife Tina leading the Pink and Blue for Two Walk,” Newton-John said. “We cannot think of a better Indy-based couple to lead this walk with us representing Pink and Blue. We hope the city and its loyal NFL fans embrace Pink and Blue for Two and will stand with us together to bring the desperately-needed attention to the ‘blue’ (prostate) side of the campaign.”

Kudos to NFL players for promoting Breast Cancer Awareness on Sunday. The manliest of men set aside their egos and wore pink shoes, gloves and sweat bands to honor women (and men) who have suffered or suffer from breast cancer.
We have been fortunate to work with our client Southern Indiana Surgery (SIS) and Columbus Regional Hospital (CRH) to promote their breast care services. The surgeons are some of the best and the program has some great results. The program was one of the first to introduce a “nurse navigator” service to ensure those who endure breast cancer will not have to go through treatment alone.Edit this post
