Breast Cancer Society of Canada announces new Pin Your Pink Campaign for 2021
SARNIA, Ontario, Sept. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Breast Cancer Society of Canada (BCSC) today announced its annual Dress for the Cause campaign as well as the addition of their new ‘Pin Your Pink’ ribbon initiative. Both campaigns are running nationally throughout October in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Driven by their vision to end breast cancer, BCSC has funded ground-breaking research in Canada since 1991. In 1998, Dress for the Cause was established to help get Canadian companies, schools, and organizations involved in the cause. Since the inception of Dress for the Cause, participation has grown to over 60,000 people annually and overall funds raised to date are just over $10 million dollars.
For 2021, BCSC has introduced the Pin Your Pink Ribbon as a new way for participants to Dress for the Cause:
“Whether you buy a pink ribbon from a participating retailer to pin on your clothes or create and download a personalized digital ribbon, you can help support life-saving breast cancer research,” says Kimberly Carson, CEO of Breast Cancer Society of Canada. “Everyone knows someone who has been affected by breast cancer. We invite all Canadians to Dress for the Cause and Pin Your Pink during International Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”
