The month of October seems like a blur of pink everywhere for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink shirts, pink ribbons, pink balloons, and even I have pink hair! As an employee of the RAC and a granddaughter of a survivor and friend of an angel, I was SO excited to learn what Campus Recreation and Intramural was doing to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. CRI teamed up with Zeta Tau Alpha and hosted an event set-up by Shape Magazine.. It was called “Pilates for Pink.” Students were encouraged to attend Group Fitness classes such as “Booty Beat to Beat Breast Cancer” and “Spin for Second Base.” Along with their attendance to show their support for beating Breast Cancer, the suggested donation was $5 with all proceeds going to Susan G. Komen Foundation. This was a great example of PR at it’s finest. I’ve been quite proud to wear my pink ribbon on my name tag at work everyday.

As far as my pink hair goes.. A group of my girlfriends and I went to Color Boxx Hair Salon in Savannah, Georgia to do our part in supporting the fight against Breast Cancer. They were selling hot pink hair extensions for $25 with all proceeds going to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. My four friends and I have been wearing our pink hair proudly and when someone notices, I direct them to Color Boxx Hair Salon and tell them to join the cause. It’s great publicity for Susan G. Komen and Color Boxx.
