Twelve local community leaders took a stand against breast cancer on Thursday August 25, in the first Real Men Wear Pink of Flint Campaign, an event that kicks off the fundraising efforts of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Those participating are Ed Benning, Brandon Carr, Pat Clark, Kent Elliott, Matt Franklin, Dr. Randy Hicks, Mark Hoffman, Ronny Medawar, Chuckii Montgomery, Dr. Bobby Mukkamala, Morris Peterson, Jr., and Wade Pyles. According to the American Cancer Society, the men will raise funds for the fight against breast cancer and will also wear pink throughout the month of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The American Cancer Society is determined to save lives from breast cancer by promoting early detection and prevention, funding groundbreaking research, and giving patients support wherever and whenever they need it.
