EVENT Wear Pink Day set for Oct. 5

The Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure ® and the city of Houston, are encouraging all Houstonians to rally together and wear pink in support of the second annual “Pink Out Day" on Friday, Oct. 5, the day before the 2012 Komen Houston Race for the Cure® in downtown Houston.

“’Pink Out Day’ allows everyone to show their true color – pink – and demonstrate how much they truly care about eradicating breast cancer,” said Adriana Higgins, Komen Houston Executive Director. “This day honors those who have passed, as well as revel the strength of cancer survivors everywhere. We are also very excited that City Hall will be lit up in pink in support of ‘Pink Out Day.’”

The 22nd Annual Komen Houston Race for the Cure® is sponsored locally by Marathon Oil Corporation and hopes to raise more than $4 million for breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment to be used right here in Houston and the surrounding areas.
