Airport Road, October 11, 2016 – Winair has teamed up with the Positive Foundation in their breast cancer awareness efforts to make St. Maarten and other Winair destinations more conscious that early detection is the key and is still the best protection in the fight against breast cancer and saving lives. “Winair is proud to partner with the Positive Foundation to assist in building this awareness and Winair will show their support in several ways”, says President and CEO Michael Cleaver.

This year Winair joined the Pink Parade with 30+ employees proudly and enthusiastically walking behind the Pink Winair banner.

Winair’s pilots will be wearing pink epaulettes during the month of October. Every pilot takes a lot of pride in wearing their epaulettes, which they have earned the right to wear through dedication and hard work. It is with that same pride that they support breast cancer awareness and research by wearing pink epaulettes for a month.

While #FlyPink is a global aviation industry initiative to support organizations around the world that provide research for breast cancer and help save lives, Winair has taken the #FlyPink initiative even higher. Not only will the pilots be wearing pink, all Winair aircraft are outfitted with Pink Ribbons on the fuselage with the intention not only to create awareness on St. Maarten but all other destinations Winair flies.

Lastly Winair has provided the Positive Foundation with ticket vouchers to be used as incentives to the events. So check out the calendar of events, participate and win both the fight against breast cancer and also Winair tickets!

As long as people are still being diagnosed with 3rd or 4th stage breast cancer, the President of the Positive Foundation, Shelly Alphonso sees the need to continue the “Be Breast Aware” movement with a call to action to “Find it, Feel it, Fight it!” - creating a future where early detection is the norm. The Positive Foundation is grateful that Winair has taken this bold move.
