Vikings Will Recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month At Today’s Game

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 9, 2011 – 8:17 am

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.

    Berrian had to be reminded by Coach frazier of the team’s restrictions on social media. A fan tweeted that the reciever was wide open at least 5 times last Sunday. Later he defended his tweet by responding, “been like that the last 4 years” _ we can go watch film- that’s the proof with me

    Hmmmmmmmm….

    Sitting on the bench doesn’t count as being open.

    I can’t thank you all enough for supporting breast cancer and early screening thoughout October! I was very recently diagnosed with breast cancer after a routine mammogram and just underwent surgery. Watching the game yesterday and seeing the support of pink was the best show of concern and the fight to win the cancer battle — it put a smile on face despite the pain! Thanks Vikes and Viking Fans! You made my day a better one!
