A dozen plastic pink flamingos are making their way onto selected front lawns across the city, accompanied by a sign saying, “You got flocked.”
Flamingo Flocking is a national movement created to raise money to fight for breast cancer. Peabody resident Liz Mover is using it as a fun way to spread awareness of the North Shore Cancer Walk in Salem.
“It’s been an awesome way to get the community aware of the walk,” said Mover. It allows people to give a small donation to the cause and “send the flock to the next house.”
On Sunday, June 23, Mover and her 10-member team will participate in the 29th annual North Shore Cancer Walk under their group name “Team Breasties,” supporting a cause that has changed her life.
In February 2018, Mover was diagnosed with breast cancer. After feeling a lump and experiencing pain in her arm, she went to the Mass General/North Shore Outpatient Center in Danvers, where she received a mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy that same day.
