Breast cancer affects millions of Americans annually, including many members of the NFL family. Building on the success of last year’s campaign, the NFL will recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month in a prominent way.
During October, NFL coaches, officials and players will wear pink equipment, from hats to shoes to sweatbands. This apparel will be autographed by coaches and players and then auctioned off, with proceeds benefiting Breast Cancer Awareness efforts. There will be many other game-day elements designed to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month, including on-field pink ribbon stencils, pink goal post pads and pink ribbon decals on game balls.
The NFL’s Breast Cancer Awareness campaign is called “A Crucial Catch: Annual Screening Saves Lives.” This campaign is designed to encourage annual mammograms for women over the age of 40.
