Every year in October, when the world celebrates pink during the celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, people silently wonder if the pink movement really helps promote cancer. In particular, does the annual NFL pink-wearing campaign really pay off? Has it changed in the lives of cancer patients, survivors and victims?
This year, football teams have shown support for breast cancer awareness in different ways. Here are some stories:
The Cardinals of Arizona On September 30, a dinner was held for breast cancer survivors. Amber Carrington from season 4 of “The Voice” sang the anthem. Carrington’s mother died of breast malignancy.
The Juices of Atlanta treated the five survivors to a night of exquisite dinner, which they called the fifth annual “Blinding and Dinner” event. While singing the anthem, the river rescuers held a large pink ribbon. The “Falcons” flag was also hung by the survivors and their families.
The Baltimore Crow A tribute to the victims of breast cancer and patients in the community was held on the football field. Pink shirts were provided to all survivors. Krumkachi’s wives, staff and fans have also taken steps against breast cancer.
The Bifala made a solemn pink lighting of Niagara Falls, and also arranged pink fireworks.
The Carolina Panther handed out tickets to the game to those who submitted their stories to the team’s website, magazine and program. Panthers player Greg Olsen, whose mother herself survived, held the position of honorary drummer until the start.
The Chicago bears printed pink shirts with the slogan “Fans of bears wear pink” and sold them for the benefit of cancer patients. Proceeds from the sale were used to provide critical breast care services to women from low-income families.
To date, the NFL has been able to raise a total of $ 4.5 million in the American Cancer Society from proceeds from the sale of pink goods. Players, coaches and referees must wear a pink uniform, such as a pink uniform, pink hairstyles and pink soccer socks during games in the month of October. All pink goods were then autographed by the owners, sold at auction, and proceeds from breast cancer and other cancer-promoting groups were raised.
Football fans can also participate in an advertising campaign, as some NFL partners sell pink goods in stadium stores as well as online. Again, the percentage of profits from the sale of pink goods benefits charities.
