Pink Ribbon Program | Breast Cancer Recovery Program | PJCC
The PJCC is proud to offer The Pink Ribbon Program, a postoperative workout designed to enhance recovery for breast cancer patients. It's the only program of its kind on the Peninsula!
This innovative program includes:
- Supervision by highly trained medical exercise specialists
- Pre- and post-fitness assessments
- Individualized exercise programs designed to produce significant changes in health
- 30-minute private group classes twice a week for eight weeks
- Programs delivered in a fun, motivational and supportive small group setting
This private, small-group, post-rehabilitation class is open to all breast cancer survivors whether surgery was eight weeks or 20 years ago. The PJCC is the only facility on the Peninsula to offer this innovative program.
We are excited to announce a new partnership between the PJCC and Bay Area Cancer Connections (BCC).

Pink Ribbon Day 2014 - A Big Success
Thank you to Kristen Thomson and everyone who came out to support our Pink Ribbon Fundraising Day. We had over 200 people participating in our various classes and activities including our Market Place where we sold special jewelry and clothing, and had representatives from our local hospital partners and breast support groups. We had ‘Boob Camps’, Indoor Cycling classes, Tai Bo and Pink Dance parties, a Swim meet, and a fantastic key note presentation!
You all rocked it with your pink outfits through the week. We are touched and proud of everyone for participating.
We have raised $5,600 with lots more coming in!
Thank you again for all your support for our great Pink Ribbon Program!!
