January 11 – February 26, 2023

ABC 6 News is once again a proud sponsor of Paint the Town Pink campaign. Paint the Town Pink is an annual campaign to raise funds for breast cancer and other cancer research at The Hormel Institute.

Paint the Town Pink allows researchers to further their research as well as fostering a greater connection with the community of Austin and communities throughout the region. While the initial focus of Paint the Town Pink was only breast cancer, the answers found through research grants have been able to affect many other cancers as well.

Since it started in 2011, PTTP has raised more than $2 million for cancer research at The Hormel Institute. Thanks to the support of The Hormel Foundation, 100% of those donations go directly to research, none to administrative costs. Because of the amazing outpouring of support from the community, 15 Paint the Town Pink seed grants have now been distributed to researchers at The Hormel Institute.
