Washington Dedicates Saints Game to Breast Cancer Awareness
The Washington Football Team announced its annual Breast Cancer Awareness game will take place on October 10th against the New Orleans Saints.
In-game activations will include Washington Football Team gameday staff wearing pink uniforms for the New Orleans Saints game on October 10th. 40,000 “Tackle Cancer” pink rally towels will be handed out at the stadium gates courtesy of Inova, and an additional 5,750 white towels will be given out to represent the one in eight women in the United States that will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
“It's hard to believe that we are in our third decade of encouraging fans to ‘THINK PINK’ and make a ‘Crucial Catch’ for Breast Cancer Awareness,” said co-CEO Tanya Snyder. “We have surpassed 9 million ribbons and look forward to getting to 10 million as we continue the tradition of highlighting early detection as the number one defense in battling this disease.”
Beginning September 21st, fans purchasing select single game tickets will have a chance to bundle in a Breast Cancer Awareness t-shirt at WashingtonFootball.com/ThinkPinkTicket. The limited-edition Washington Football Team Burgundy, Gold & Pink T-shirt will feature a unique design for the 2021 season. Proceeds from the t-shirt and ticket bundle will benefit the Brem Foundation to Defeat Breast Cancer and the Zeta Tau Alpha (ZTA) Foundation.
On October 12th, the franchise also will host the thirteenth annual All-Star Survivors Celebration, an event focused on supporting and celebrating 30 All-Star Survivors, women whose lives have been affected by breast cancer, and their families. During the event, the breast cancer survivors, or “All-Stars”, will receive new jeans donated by Gap Inc., custom Color Bar jewelry donated by Kendra Scott, spa services courtesy of Lansdowne Resort and Spa, wigs and scarves provided by the American Cancer Society, and a Washington Football gift bag. All-Stars will be treated to lunch, makeup consultations, and massages.
