Breast Cancer Awareness to be recognized Sunday

Posted by Duke Bobber on September 27, 2011 – 11:59 pm

Sunday’s Packers-Broncos game recognizes Breast Cancer Awareness and the 50th Anniversary of the Packers 1961 Championship.

Breast Cancer Awareness
The Green Bay Packers and Kohl’s Department Stores will recognize National Breast Cancer Awareness Month at this game in several ways.

Kohl's CaresFans will receive pink Kohl’s Cares rally towels as they enter the stadium, and then see players, coaches, officials, cheerleaders, TundraLine members and Lambeau Field in general sporting the color pink.

Kohl’s sponsorship of the Green Bay Packers Oct. 2 breast cancer awareness game is the most recent example of the company’s commitment to the fight against breast cancer.  In 2010, Kohl’s announced a new philanthropic initiative supporting women’s health with a commitment of $7 million over three years to the American Cancer Society’s Midwest Division and the Southeast Wisconsin Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure to support breast cancer research, education and patient assistance programs.  Kohl’s also has the Kohl’s Cares cause merchandise program, which sells exclusive merchandise in all 40 Wisconsin Kohl’s stores and online at Kohls.com/cares, with 100 percent of the net profit of these items donated to support the fight against breast cancer.

The National Football League has partnered with the American Cancer Society during October with a campaign called “A Crucial Catch: Annual Screening Saves Lives,” which encourages annual mammograms for women over 40. More information about the effort, as well as about preventing breast cancer and getting screened, can be found online at http://www.nfl.com/pink. All apparel worn at games by players and coaches, along with special game balls and pink coins will be auctioned off at NFL Auction (www.NFL.com/auction), with proceeds benefitting the American Cancer Society and team charities.

Packers 1961 Championship
The match-up between the Packers and Broncos also marks the annual Green Bay Packers alumni game. Packers alumni will be on-field with Lombardi’s 1961 Championship Team being introduced at halftime. Fans will also receive a 1961 Packers Team Photo upon entering the gates today, courtesy of Robert Haack Diamonds in Milwaukee.

    Sunday only please, not the whole month of October! I can appreciate the cause, I’m all about saving the ta ta’s! but there’s something fundamentally wrong with NFL football being played in pink.

    Mmmmmm, Ta Ta’s!!!

    As a breast cancer survivor, I am honored and inspired that the Packers will be wearing pink. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime….that statistic pretty much ensures that each and every person (Packers included) will know someone who will have to face this battle. Go Pack….wear the Pink proudly…..and thank you.

    I am also honored by those that wore pink but very disappointed by the ones who did not. I am a recent survivor. It should be worn proudly all month. If you men like the TA TA’s so much then you should be supporting them as much as possible.

    I like the pink personally, even if some of the guys act as if it’s gender owned or something… it’s a color. For my part for this month, I picked up a pink backpack with the pink ribbon on the back from a komen supporting online retailer.

    Breast cancer awareness is a good cause. That being said, so are a bunch of other causes. The only difference is Pink has become PC enough to infiltrate the NFL. The NFL will accept only popular points of view, like any large corporation. I think the economy is important, too. Maybe the players should all wear green arm bands and shoes. I have no problem with players or even the NFL voicing concern for a cause. But, keep it off the field.

    Why isn’t there any equipment from Sunday’s game on the NFL breast cancer awareness auction site? Missing out on BIG BUCKS!
