Real Men Wear Pink

Real Men Wear Pink

Wear pink every Friday in October! The Real Men Wear Pink campaign encourages everyone to wear pink on Fridays in October to increase awareness about breast cancer, encouraging women to talk to their doctor about the correct time to get a mammogram.

“Real Men Wear Pink,” St. Mary’s Hospital’s breast cancer awareness campaign, is in its 11th year. Hundreds of men, both young and old, from our community have stepped forward over the past decade to represent the campaign as “Real Men.” Men, and women, are asked to wear pink on Friday’s during the month of October in an ongoing effort to encourage women to get biennial mammography screenings once they reach the age of 50. Fifteen football teams and coaches, represent the campaign as Real Men. The teams include Argenta Oreana, Central A&M, Cerro Gordo-Bement, Clinton, Eisenhower, LSA, MacArthur, Maroa Forsyth, Meridian, Millikin University, Mt. Zion, Sangamon Valley, St. Teresa, Sullivan-Okaw Valley and Warrensburg Latham.

This year Real Men Wear Pink in Decatur is sponsored by HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital, Maverik Marketing, WSOY, 1050 AM ESPN Decatur and Nowdecatur.com.

RMWP shirts are for sale in the St. Mary’s gift shop for $10 each. All proceeds come back to the St. Mary’s Cancer Care Center.
