BOURBONNAIS, IL – October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Ford Warriors in Pink® – the program created by Ford Motor Company to raise awareness and funds in the fight against breast cancer – continues its 19-year quest to keep the subject of breast cancer a part of everyday life.
This month Ford Warriors in Pink and actor Gilles Marini will be in New York City promoting the limited-edition T-shirt Marini created to aid in the fight against the disease.
Additionally, Ford Warriors in Pink is launching two distinct video series: One, “In Her World,” created by celebrity news site PopSugar, is an intimate look at prominent women and their stories of inspiration. The other, “Courage Talks,” part of the Models of Courage campaign created in 2012, covers the difficult conversations breast cancer patients will inevitably face.
Locally, the American Cancer Society will be sponsoring a 5k run and walk to take place in 8 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 12, at Legion Park, Watseka. There are categories for each 10-year age group. Costs are $22.50 in advance and $25.75 on race day. Register at entry.iwantregistered.com. For information, call Amanda German at 815-216-2234.
