PINK SKIES TO AIR ON DOCUMENTARY CHANNEL

Don’t miss this! Pink Skies, an inspirational documentary about the empowerment of women and the prevention of breast cancer, will premiere Saturday, March 3 on the Documentary Channel.

The film is about overcoming obstacles as athletes and as human beings. It covers an extraordinary event ‘Jump for the Cause’ that brought together 181 women from 31 countries to create a World Record All-Women’s Skydiving Formation — and raised almost $1 million for breast cancer research. Along with phenomenal sky diving footage, the film also features breast cancer survivors, cutting edge researchers, doctors, healers and activists — including Campaign for Safe Cosmetics co-founder Stacy Malkan, talking about cancer-causing chemicals in cosmetics.

This must-see film reveals breakthroughs that have not been widely publicized, explores whats working and what needs to be changed and the seismic shift towards prevention. Check out the Documentary Channel website for more info.
