Does the NFL still support breast cancer awareness? Starting this Sunday, the NFL will be broadening its cancer awareness campaign, no longer using October to focus solely on Breast Cancer and the color pink. Instead, the league will use the month to raise awareness and money to fight multiple types of cancer.
What is the theme for breast cancer awareness 2021? The theme for Breast Cancer Awareness month 2021 is “RISE: Rally In Supporting, Serving and Screening Everyone,” which encourages women to go for mammogram screening and raise breast cancer awareness with the support of their family and friends to overcome fear, anxiety, and uncertainty.
When did the NFL start breast cancer awareness? Since 2009, the NFL has dressed up its fields, sidelines and players in pink every October to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer screenings and education in conjunction with the American Cancer Society.
When did NFL stop wearing pink? Eight years after they first began wearing pink in 2009, there’s no pink shoes. No pink gloves. No pink awareness ribbons painted on the field. It’s not that the NFL no longer supports breast cancer awareness month, it’s just expanded its scope to raise awareness for other diseases.
