The Real Men Wear Pink program gives men a leadership role in the fight against breast cancer. Working alongside our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events, Real Men Wear Pink gives communities the opportunity to nominate local male leaders to spearhead fundraising for the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer initiatives. Every dollar raised helps save lives from breast cancer through early detection and prevention, innovative breast cancer research, and patient support.

Long Beach Branch NAACP President Naomi Rainey is a co-chair of this event, and Sheba Gillis, daughter of Sharon McLucas, will be the keynote speaker. They are both urging support for this event because African American women have the highest mortality rate from breast cancer.

Why Participate and Support?….. Breast Cancer doesn’t just affect women. Thousands of men are diagnosed with the disease in the US every year. And so are more than 266,100 of their daughters, wives, mothers, sisters, and friends. That’s why we’re recruiting men to fight breast cancer through Real Men Wear Pink. The Long Beach NAACP and LA Central Coast Board distinguished men are proud to raise awareness and money to support the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer initiatives and to save more lives.
