My wife and I participated in YSC Tour de Pink this past year. We got to meet a lot of young women who have benefited from the work that the Young Survival Coalition has done and got to see the difference this organization has made in so many lives. I would recommend this organization to anyone interested in making a positive difference in the lives of others.
