This weekend is the perfect time for Georgia football fans to give back. October is breast cancer awareness month, and fans can once again partner with Bulldogs Battling Breast Cancer to make a difference in the Athens community.
The BBBC, in partnership with the UGA Spike Squad, UGA Paint Line, and Kelee Ringo’s mother, Tralee Hale are calling on Dawg fans to Paint Sanford Pink in honor of all of those whose lives have been affected by breast cancer.
While the Spike Squad and Paint Line have partnered with the BBBC to Paint Sanford Pink for one game in October for a few years now, Tralee Hale and Kelee Ringo became heavily involved last year due to Hale’s own hard-fought battle with breast cancer. As a Bulldog mom, Hale quickly won over fans with her passion and contagious energy. But it was her openness and strength as she has bravely fought breast cancer that has strengthened her bond with Dawgnation and led to her partnership with the BBBC.
Georgia football fans don your pink this weekend in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Bulldog fans have rallied around Hale and Ringo in the past, and they’re hoping to do so again this Saturday as they Paint Sanford Pink.
Whether attending the game or not, Georgia fans can support the BBBC and St. Mary’s Foundation in Athens through the Point Pledge Drive. Fans can pledge any dollar amount per UGA point scored against Vanderbilt and Florida in the coming weeks. So far, Georgia fans have raised $250 per point scored for the BBBC, but they’re hoping to hit $350 per point before Saturday’s kickoff.
The UGA Spike Squad is also offering a new opportunity this year for fans to support the BBBC and receive a personalized message from a member of the Spike Squad.
About 12% of women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their life. The BBBC, in conjunction with St. Mary’s Foundation in Athens, helps educate about the importance of early detection while also providing free mammograms to fight back against breast cancer.
It’s likely that someone in your life has been affected or will be affected by breast cancer. What better way to show your support than partnering with the BBBC and helping Paint Sanford Pink? Despite where you are, Saturday is the perfect time to cheer on the Dawgs while supporting a great cause. Just don’t forget to wear pink!
