Saturday is Gilbert Wong's Turn to Slip on the Pink

Councilmember Gilbert Wong has agreed to join Team Never Give Up on their training walk Saturday. Everyone else is invited, too, to show their support for breast cancer awareness.

The fourth city official sure looks pretty in pink with the Cupertino walkers, wouldn’t you agree?

“One more councilman to go,” said Alysa Sakkas.

And that fifth councimember is Gilbert Wong who will join the walkers on Saturday.

Four of the five city councilmembers already joined Sakkas and other members of Team Never Give Up, a group of women training for a three-day Susan G. Komen Walk for a Cure in Sand Diego later this month.

Never Give Up has been inviting the community to join them for all or part of their training walks—and they are still encouraging people to join them.

First Mayor Mark Santoro joined the team on a five-high-school walk wearing a t-shirt with pink flamingoes on it. Next Councilmember Rod Sinks came out blazing in a pink t-shirt. Councilmember Orrin Mahoney showed his support one day sans pink and finally Councilmember Barry Chang joined the team on Friday looking fine in a pink dress shirt.

It’s your turn, Gilbert!

Anyone interested in joining the group for all or part of the walk should meet them at the Starbucks at Stevens Creek and De Anza Boulevards at 7:30 a.m.

Thanks to all of our Councilmembers for doing this. It really does make Cupertino feel like a little town! A very supportive little town.
