As October nears, so again does the Canadian Cancer Society’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Once again, For Sale On Georgian Bay will be proudly supporting this amazing cause for the month of October.
Last year, we raised $8,500 during October and this year, we’re looking to raise even more!
We will be turning all of our For Sale signs across the community bright pink along with all of our social platforms, so be on the look out as we help raise awareness about Breast Cancer. Special mention to North Simcoe signs in Midland who last year were incredibly kind and generous in donating 50% of the printing costs of our Pink Signs. Thank you for your help and support towards this cause.
Did you know that the latest stats from the Canadian Cancer Society indicate that 1 in 8 women will develop Breast Cancer. Awareness and early detection is crucial, combine that with the better therapies that we have access to now, means that we’ve seen a 44% decline in the Breast Cancer death rate since 1988. Despite this, the number of Breast Cancer diagnoses is estimated to increase 25% between 2015 and 2030 and that’s why it’s so important to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
We will be rolling out all of our Pink items across the month of October and making regular donations in aide of the Canadian Cancer Society so stay tuned, get involved and think PINK!
