Breast cancer affects everyone. It does not discriminate and can affect both women and men. The American Cancer Society’s (ACS) popular Real Men Wear Pink Campaign is back for its 3rdyear with a new group raising money for the 2018 campaign through the power of pink.

Every dollar that the ACS raises saves lives from breast cancer through prevention, education, early detection, research and support to patients.

“In addition to wearing pink and raising awareness about breast cancer, these men will be raising funds to help the American Cancer Society attack cancer from every angle and save more lives from breast cancer,” said Katie Jones, Senior Manager Community Development for the American Cancer Society. “We are grateful to our Real Men Wear Pink participants for lending their voices to this cause and fighting for everyone affected by breast cancer.”

Each Real Men Wear Pink participant accepts a fundraising challenge and will compete to be the top fundraiser among his peers by the end of the campaign.

This year’s group includes:

Zach Krieger – M3 Group

Troy Ferguson – McLaren Greater Lansing

Curt Keck – Keck Coleman Funeral Home

Brandon Currin – Holt Public Schools

Christian Braun – Re/Max

Harold Pope – Alpha Phi Alpha

Jim Alfredson – Jazz Musician

Mike Zamiara – Niowave

Patrick Monroe – Independence Village of Grand Ledge

Tim Gates – Michigan State University

Will Leanski – Meiers Lombardini Lemanski Insurance

William Doxie – Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc.
