Centerfield Raises Awareness for Pink October
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Centerfield is showing support!
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual international health campaign organized by major charities every October to increase awareness of breast cancer and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.
In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Centerfield held a Pink October Day at the Los Angeles, Boston, and Fort Lauderdale offices on October 9th to raise awareness and to facilitate donations to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
BCRF is a nonprofit organization committed to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer. They provide critical funding for cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis and survivorship.
On Pink October Day, Centerfield pledged to donate:
- $20 for each employee who wore an article of pink
- $30 for each employee who baked or brought in any pink themed treats or drinks
- $50 for each employee who decorated their desk in pink
- $250 for the person deemed the “Primo Person in Pink”
Centerfielders did not disappoint! We embraced the theme in full force by wearing pink, decorating our desks, and bringing in lots of pink themed treats.
Thanks to all our support, Centerfield donated a total of $5,990 to BCRF thus far! The New York office will be holding their Pink October Day later in the month and more donations will be rolling in. Giving back is one of the official Nine Traits of Being a Centerfielder, so we are extremely thankful to be able to give back to a cause that impacts so many lives around the world.
If you would like to show support and donate to BCRF, our Fundraising Link will be active through the end of the month. Please check it out and share with friends and family!
