In its second year, the Real Men Wear Pink campaign is goaled to raise $60,000 to support the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk of DuPage County. Throughout the month of October, 25 prominent area men will participate in the campaign, raising funds and encouraging the women in their lives and in the community to take action in the fight to end breast cancer.
Carl Amacker, CEO of FP Mailing Solutions is among the 25 men participating in the campaign to support the Society’s breast cancer initiatives.
“We are grateful to Carl and all our Real Men Wear Pink candidates for lending their voices to our cause,” said Jennifer Brauer, Community Manager for the American Cancer Society. “Not only will they wear pink throughout the month of October, but they will raise awareness about breast cancer and made a huge commitment to raise funds to help save more lives from the disease. Those donations allow the Society to help save lives from breast cancer through early detection and prevention, innovative breast cancer research, and patient support.”
This is FP’s second year being a part of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk of DuPage. This year FP is shedding light on their fundraising efforts by creating their own hashtag on social media, #Fight4Pink.
“Whether it’s on social media, at one of our fundraising events or a trade show we are always looking for ways to promote awareness,” said Amacker, CEO of FP Mailing Solutions. “The Real Men Wear Pink campaign gives FP a chance to encourage those affected to take action in the fight against breast cancer. Our team has come up with numerous fundraising opportunities within the next two and a half months. We’re hoping to not only meet our goal but to exceed it.”
Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women other than skin cancer. According to the American Cancer Society Cancer Facts & Figures 2018, an estimated 252,710 women in the US will be diagnosed with breast cancer and an estimated 40,610 will die from the disease this year.
