Campus Federal Backs Breast Cancer
For Immediate Release
Baton Rouge, LA-November 10, 2009
Have you jumped on the PINK bandwagon? Campus Federal was excited to join the PINK initiative in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and helped to sponsor the efforts of LSU University Recreation (UREC) who teamed up with LSU Athletics to host a series of events that took place throughout the month of October. The PINK Initiative sponsors included: Campus Federal Credit Union, Bayou Apparel, and LSU Pan-Hellenic Council.
A series of weekly one mile walks and runs were the highlight of the campaign billed "The Pink Ribbon Run" series. Community participation was encouraged. The minimum donation was $10 to participate in the walk/runs. All proceeds to go to the breast cancer foundation in support of ongoing breast cancer research. Breast cancer is a disease that touches and affects many lives. One out of eight women will get diagnosed within the year and that needs to change. By supporting the PINK initiative, Campus Federal has helped increase awareness, spread knowledge and raise money toward research.
The success of The PINK initiative underscores the widespread local support around Baton Rouge for the PINK movement that is primarily designed to spread awareness and raise money for research efforts.
