American Cancer Society
Real Men Wear Pink Campaign
October 1- October 31, 2019
Breast cancer doesn’t just affect women. Thousands of men are diagnosed with the disease in the US every year.
And so are more than 266,000 of their daughters, wives, mothers, sisters, and friends. That’s why we are seeking local
Men to join us in the fight against breast cancer through Real Men Wear Pink Campaign here at the Top of Virginia. This campaign is meant to serve, Winchester and Front Royal, Frederick, Clarke and Warren Counties.
The Real Men Wear Pink Campaign raises awareness and money to support the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer patient programs including free wigs, free lodging and free rides to treatment. Money raised is also used to fund groundbreaking breast cancer research.
The participants will be challenged to wear pink EVERY day in October and to set a fundraising goal of $2500. Most of the fundraising takes place online atwww.realmenwearpinkacs.org/winchesterva and through the participants personal Facebook accounts. We are hoping to recruit 15 outstanding men to collectively raise $15,000 by October 31.
