While watching the game on Sunday, I got so EXCITED to see the football players with pink gloves, shoes, wristbands etc!! Then I noticed it was not only the players, but it was the coaches, referees and the cheerleaders with pink on as well.
Since October is breast cancer awareness month, come to find out the NFL (Players, Coaches, Referees, and Cheerleaders) are wearing PNIK to support the fight against breast cancer and to raise awareness of this important campaign! The football field of all games played in the month of October will have the NFL logo with a pink ribbon stencil, there are even special game balls and pink coins!!!!
Afterwards, all apparel worn at games by players and coaches, the special game balls and pink coins will be auctioned off at special auction (www.NFL.com/auction). The proceeds from this auction will benefit the American Cancer Society and as well as other team charities. Fan’s can even join in by purchasing special Pink NFL gear. I’ve ordered my NFL Pink jersey, can’t wait till it comes in so I can sport it on game day! I guess I’m going to be watching a little more football than usual this season.
