Real Men Wear Pink Campaign Runs Through October
Blast goalkeeper, William Vanzela, has been selected by the American Cancer Society for their Real Men Wear Pink Campaign. William will be wearing something pink each day through October.

The links are listed at the bottom of this press release.
It takes everyone to create a world free from the pain and suffering caused by breast cancer – both women and men alike. In an effort to create a unique platform to invite men to show support for this important cause, the American Cancer Society is engaging and empowering male community leaders in the fight against breast cancer through the Real Men Wear Pink Campaign. Each Real Men Wear Pink candidate is charged with a fundraising challenge and competes to be the top fundraiser among the other candidates by the end of the campaign. Joining William Vanzela in the campaign this year is Carl Delmont from the Harrisburg Heat and Freedmont Mortgage.
While this campaign is a fundraising initiative, it also provides strong awareness efforts in the local community for the American Cancer Society and the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer program. Since 1993, more than 12 million Making Strides Against Breast Cancer participants have helped raise more than $750 million to create a world free from the pain and suffering caused by breast cancer. The noncompetitive three- to five-mile walks are held in nearly 300 communities nationwide. Last year, 1.4 million walkers raised more than $60 million. Dollars raised help the American Cancer Society ensure no one faces breast cancer alone by funding innovative breast cancer research; promoting education and risk reduction; and providing comprehensive patient support to those who need it most.
