Nearly 50 area leaders participated in the region’s third annual Real Men Wear Pink campaign to support the American Cancer Society’s efforts to end breast cancer. During October, campaign participants raised more than $81,000 in donations and encouraged community members to take action in the fight against breast cancer.

This year’s top fundraiser was C. David Minifie of the Centene Corporation, who helped raise $10,944 to support the American Cancer Society and those impacted by breast cancer.

“We are grateful to C. David Minifie and all our Real Men Wear Pink participants for lending their voices to our cause,” says Laura Ozenkoski, community manager for the American Cancer Society. “Not only did they wear pink, but they raised awareness about breast cancer and made a huge commitment to raise funds to help save more lives. Those donations help us save lives from breast cancer through early detection and prevention, innovative breast cancer research, and patient support.”
