Real Men Wear Pink campaign

Since 1993, participants in the Making Strides against Breast Cancer program have helped raise more than $800 million to create a world free from breast cancer.
Twenty-two men on the Gulf Coast are taking a stand in this year’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign. Each Real Men Wear Pink ambassador commits to raising at least $2,500 and wearing pink every day in the month of October.
Ten ambassadors from last year’s event will be participating plus 12 men have accepted the nomination to be joining them. Danielle Anderson with Psycamore Psychiatric Programs said, “I have known several people that are affected by breast cancer over the years and I don’t know, it’s just something to be a part of and there are so many good causes out there and this is the one I chose to support.”
Last year, the campaign had a goal to raise $50,000 and ended up with nearly $75,000. While this campaign is a fundraising initiative it also provides strong awareness in the local community for the American Cancer Society and the Making Strides against Breast Cancer program.
