Showing off your pink pride during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a favorite thing to do with survivors and supporters alike.
Thousands of hats, shirts, and other pink breast cancer items are sold in October. Millions of tiny pink ribbons are worn to support the cure for breast cancer and hope for many women.
Also, countless numbers of people show support of Breast Cancer Awareness by participating in fundraising events. Have you joined a local support group? Joined efforts with other supporters to hold a fundraiser or night out?
The "Miss Pink" Breast Cancer Awareness Natural Beauty Pageant will be held on Oct. 27 at Liberty Hill United Methodist Church at 10 a.m. Contestants will participate in honor of, in support for, or in memory of a friend or family member, many of whom will be allowed on stage.
Contestants will be raising money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. There will be a special prize for the contestant that raises the most money!
Futher afield, North Georgia Premium Outlets in Dawsonville will team up with Susan G. Komen For The Cure to support breast cancer awareness, research and treatment programs. Customers of the outlet mall can visit the Information Center on-site and donate $10 towards the cause. In return, customers will receive 25 percent off one item in select stores.
