Real Men Wear Pink in Lake Orion
Breast cancer affects everyone. That’s why Real Men Wear Pink, a distinguished group of community leaders, is determined to raise awareness and money to support our mission to save more lives than ever from breast cancer.
When communities unite to fight breast cancer, great things happen. By tapping into the power of pink, Real Men Wear Pink has raised over $6.5 million that can help provide free transportation to treatment, a live 24/7 helpline for answers and support, breakthrough research, and so much more.
Real Men Wear Pink gives men a leadership role in the fight against breast cancer. Community leaders around the nation use the power of pink to raise awareness and money for the American Cancer Society's breast cancer initiatives, including innovative research, patient services, and education around screenings and risk reduction. It's one important way we're attacking cancer from every angle.
As a Real Men Wear Pink candidate, leaders commit to:
- Wearing pink throughout October
- Raising awareness for the cause through their social media networks
- Raising a minimum of $2,500 to help the American Cancer Society fight breast cancer
We all know how much passion our community leaders in Lake Orion have and the causes they support. The Real Men Wear Pink campaign is one of those causes that Lake Orion stands behind. Within the last few years they have been bringing awareness and engaging with the community. In 2017, Matt Pfeiffer raised around $15,000 in donations throughout his campaign. In 2018, Garrett Hoffman raised around $12,000 in donations throughout his campaign. In 2019, Matt and Garrett teamed up with Aaron Whatley and Jerry Narsh to raise $21,241. Matt and Garrett are back and have joined forces with Jordan Knudsen for the 2020 campaign.
