Did you know?
- One in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in her lifetime.
- Men as well as women can get breast cancer, though it is rarer in men.
- There are several factors known to increase your risk of getting breast cancer, but some people who have these risk factors never get the disease.
- 60-70% of people who do develop breast cancer don’t have any of the known risk factors.
And that’s why October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
For the past few years, the National Football League and other men’s and women’s sports organizations both pro and amateur have made a point of promoting breast cancer awareness during the month of October. This year, the NFL is using their star power to increase public awareness and provide funds to fight multiple forms of cancer.
We invite you to join our SquadLocker team in showing your support – for survivors and for ending this life-threatening disease. At the same time you can raise funds for your own school or organization. How?
Think pink! It’s the official color of breast cancer awareness
Here are 6 top items to add to your store to boost breast cancer awareness. Your athletes or students, parents and community fans will love these picks – all are appropriately pink, all can be custom decorated with your school or organization logo, and we’re offering all of them at 15% off during October.
What better way to show your spirit and encourage your friends and followers to join the fight to defeat breast cancer!

And, speaking of spreading the word, the National Breast Cancer Foundation offers a free eBook that describes common breast problems that are not related to cancer but are often overlooked. It’s a must-read for women of all ages, and October is just the month to download your copy.
