 In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, the City of Calera is collaborating with local public schools to offer t-shirt sales, host survivor recognitions, and invite local businesses to go pink throughout the month of October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“This city continues to amaze me on how they come together each year to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research,” said Kate Kiefer, Board of Directors member for the BCRFA. “Calera is truly uniting and bringing the entire city together to help raise awareness for such an important cause.”

Golfers from across the area will come out to support breast cancer research in Alabama at the “Calera Goes Pink Golf Tournament” on Sunday, October 20th at Timberline Golf Club. Proceeds from the tournament will also support BCRFA.

The month-long Calera Goes Pink initiative will go out in a parade of pink on November 1st, as Calera High School hosts the Helena Huskies for the annual “Pink Out” football game. The public is invited to come out and support their efforts in increasing awareness for breast cancer and funding for research.

 

All proceeds from the month-long community initiative will help the BCRFA provide critical seed dollars for researchers to help the produce the necessary data required to secure national breast cancer research grants.  All research dollars raised in Alabama will stay in Alabama, but the research and new treatments discovered will reach breast cancer patients across the nation.
