Jet Linx dons tutus for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Jet Link has partnered with The Tutu Project for a third year to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Throughout October, Jet Linx will be encouraging its network of clients, friends and colleagues across its 14 base locations to wear tutus to raise money and awareness for The Tutu Project and The Carey Foundation.

Jamie Walker, president and CEO of Jet Linx, said, “It is one of the most fun and rewarding charities we participate in. Jet Linx team members, alongside our generous community of clients and friends, proudly wear pink tutus in a bold effort to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer and The Tutu Project.”

Bob Carey, the photographer behind The Tutu Project, founded the organization with his wife, Linda, after she was diagnosed with the disease in 2002. To put a smile on Linda’s face, Bob began taking photos of himself in a pink tutu. He now helps inspire thousands with his photos, including a limited-edition Jet Linx Tutu Project photo. The photo will be available for silent auction at Jet Linx base locations and will be featured in the official 2018 Tutu Project wall calendar.

Jet Linx will donate US$20 as part of its Every Tutu Counts social media campaign for each photo submitted to a Jet Linx Base with the iconic tutus and the #Dare2Tutu hashtag. To date, Jet Linx has raised a total of US$27,395 for the organization. Jet Linx pilots will also be bringing awareness to the skies, with flight crew members wearing pink ties for the month of October.

Linda Carey, co-creator of The Tutu Project and president of the Carey Foundation, commented, “We are very excited that this is our third year working with Jet Linx. They have been wonderful to work with and they have helped us reach our goals of helping to make the lives and women and men living with breast cancer easier.”
