Breast cancer affects both men and women. The American Cancer Society recruits male leaders in the community to fight breast cancer through their Real Men Wear Pink campaign. These men are determined to raise awareness and funds to support the American Cancer Society's mission to save lives from breast cancer, while attending Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events in their community.
The local men among this group are chief police officers, news reporters, and businessmen. They are given the opportunity to use their leadership role in the community to fight against breast cancer. Pink is powerful, and this campaign raised over $9.5 million in 2018.
All of Charleston's Real Men are committed to:
- Fundraise a minimum of $2,500 for the American Cancer Society's mission to save lives from breast cancer
- Wear pink throughout the month of October
- Raise awareness through their social networks and leadership roles
You can click each Real Man's name below to donate directly to their fundraiser.
The Real Men will be recognized throughout the month of October in their community, and at the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on October 27th.
To nominate someone or yourself as a Real Man, email or call Charlie Rowen at firstname.lastname@example.org or (843) 790-6212. Learn more here.
