What does the month of October mean for the NFL? Pink! Breast-Cancer Awareness Month has officially kicked off, giving NFL players the opportunity to demonstrate their support for the cause. Read more about it here!
Aside from skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common form of the illness, and yet, an alarming number of people are not completely informed about the life or death subject. This is why the National Football League has gone Pink for Breast-Cancer Awareness Month.
Not only does this act of philanthropy shed light on the matter, but it also gives the players a chance to sport trendy apparel. Whether it is their patches, towels, or caps, players can choose whatever apparel they want to match the color named after a pop star.
Hailed as the “ A Crucial Catch” campaign, the NFL will also hold an auction to raise money for the American Cancer Society by selling off memorabilia. Speaking of crucial catches, did anyone see that amazing, last-second Brett Farve pass to Creg Lewis two weeks ago?! Although it’s not quite as important as breast cancer, I certainly thought it was a catch worth noting.
As of now, October is the unofficial “pink” month, but in the hearts of all the like-minded people who strive to bring more awareness to the crucial matter, every month is a mixture of red and white.
