Whether it's your wife, daughter, friend or co-worker, you probably know someone who has been affected by breast cancer. Unfortunately breast cancer currently affects 1 in 8 women and 1 in 1,000 men in their lifetimes.
You can help us fight this disease by joining our inaugural class of the PINK TIE GUYS. Together we can help inform, influence and inspire our community and help to end breast cancer forever.
This exclusive group of KoMEN will be asked to speak out in their communities about breast health awareness, attend Komen Columbus events and activities when applicable, and work to engage their friends, family and co-workers in the fight against breast cancer.
As a Pink Tie Guy, demonstrate your commitment to the Komen mission of saving lives and ending breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.
KoMEN wishing to join the Pink Tie Guys will become visible figures in the Central and Southeastern Ohio community and will be provided a number of opportunities to network with like-minded leaders. Some of the Pink Tie Guy benefits are as follows:
A pink tie will be given to each Pink Tie Guy to wear and show your support of finding the cures for breast cancer. We ask that any men interested in joining the Pink Tie Guys complete this brief application and contribute $75. (This donation will cover the cost of a Komen pink tie and support vital breast health education, screening and treatment services in our communities.)
The first Pink Tie Guys event will be held on Thursday, October 25 at Shadowbox Live in Columbus. Contact our Pink Tie Guys Chair, Mark Rickel, for more information.
