Tough Enough to Wear Pink campaign starts

RAPID CITY, S.D. – Breast Cancer is a battle every one-in-eight women will face, as well as over 2,000 men.

The Tough Enough to wear pink fundraiser is back. The fundraiser brings awareness to breast cancer and helps with cancer treatment. T-shirts are being sold starting at $15. All of the proceeds go towards the cancer care center at Regional Health.

Several organizations, such as the Rapid City Rush and the Dahl Art Center, have joined the movement.

“Our first event will be the Rush fights cancer game on January 18th. The public are invited to come out right before and paint the name of a loved one on the ice,” said Erin Jarvis, event coordinator.

They will also sell shirts throughout the stock show and have a pink champagne lunch at the Dahl Art Center to conclude the campaign.

With every event they will have a cancer survivor, who will encourage others and give them hope.

Events will go on throughout the rest of the month and all the way to Feb. 2.
