Pink Out at Deer Creek Speedway

Join us for the next Pink Out at Deer Creek on Saturday, June 18, 2022.

Enjoy an exciting day at the racetrack and support breast cancer survivors! Join us for a day of fun at Deer Creek Speedway (15 miles South of Rochester, MN on U.S. Highway 63) to honor breast cancer survivors and raise awareness about breast cancer.

This event features explosive stock-car racing action at one of the most state-of-the-art racing complexes in the country. A full-service campground is located within the facility, so fans can make it an all-day event!

Tickets can be purchased or by calling 507-754-6107 or 877-DCS-RACE.


Our annual Pink Out at Deer Creek Speedway is on June 18! We're in need of donations for the silent auction and push up sponsors!

Get in touch with us if you'd like to make a donation of sponsorship, items, or volunteer time! Email for more information.

Pahl Hockey Partnership

We're excited to announce a partnership with Makayla Pahl, Minnesota Women's Hockey player! Makayla feels a special connection to Join the Journey as a Rochester native, but more importantly because her mother utilized our services in her own journey through breast cancer. With this partnership Makayla is using her platform and talent to help raise money and awareness for Join the Journey and we couldn't be more thrilled.

We can't wait to spill the details on the fun things we have planned for this summer with Makayla and her team. Stay tuned and we'll share more soon!

The Pink Ribbon mentorship program is truly amazing. My mentor provided me with support, knowledge and strength and empowered me to tackle my cancer treatment with a positive outlook. The fact that my mentor had been through a similar experience meant that she understood everything I was going through and was able to provide relevant and personal advice and guidance. I am truly grateful for the program and my mentor for being there for me through it all.

I was diagnosed with MBC in January of 2017 at age 62.  I began working weekly with my mentor in May of 2019.  This program has been a lifeline for me in so many ways.  Sue can relate through her personal experience as a cancer patient and provides an outlet for all those difficult discussions that are impossible to have with friends and family.  Sometimes you can gain a new perspective when you have the opportunity to just say those hard things out loud.  I am truly grateful to participate in this program.
