FARMINGTON, Connecticut — The American Cancer Society (ACS), the nation’s largest nonprofit dedicated to cancer research funding, is proud to partner with Connecticut Wealth Management (CTWM) for the launch of its Real Men Wear Pink Campaign.
The campaign kicks off on Thursday, September 15 with a special launch party at CTWM’s newly renovated Collaboration Space (281 Farmington Avenue, Farmington, CT). Local ambassadors will be in attendance to network, along with motivational and educational programs, and a virtual golf simulator contest to benefit breast cancer awareness/research.
“We’re proud to partner with Connecticut Wealth Management to host some of the region’s most dedicated breast cancer ambassadors at our Real Men Wear Pink Launch Party,” said Stephen Morelli, Senior Development Manager at the ACS. “Breast cancer research continues to be a pivotal focus of the ACS mission. Through the efforts of this campaign, and countless ambassadors nationwide, ACS is investing $71 million into breast cancer research.”
With October being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Real Men Wear Pink is a great opportunity for men to take a leadership role in the fight against breast cancer. The campaign engages local community leaders, influencers, and professionals to raise awareness and funds for the search to end breast cancer.
“Like so many others, I too have lost friends and families to this terrible disease,” said Kevin Leahy, President and CEO of CTWM. Kevin is a new ambassador for the Hartford and Springfield chapter of Real Men Wear Pink. “I’m humbled and honored to serve as an ambassador and have pledged my time and resources in support of this great cause to aid in my personal mission of helping to eradicate all forms of cancer.”
Across the nation, campaign ambassadors will wear pink during the month of October to draw attention to the cause. They will engage social media and explore creative ways to promote the cause within their local communities. The program works alongside ACS’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer® events by giving communities the opportunity to nominate local male leaders. Every dollar raised helps save lives from breast cancer through early detection and prevention, innovative breast cancer research, and patient support.
