Champion Plumbing will donate to Oklahoma Project Woman, and its technicians will don pink foot covers to raise awareness during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October
OKLAHOMA CITY, October 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Champion Plumbing, a leading plumbing service provider in the Oklahoma City area, will be outfitting its technicians with pink foot covers throughout October and donating to Oklahoma Project Woman to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“Our goal is to raise awareness of the vital research being conducted to find a cure that affects nearly 300,000 women in the United States each year,” said Leslie Harpole, co-owner of Champion Plumbing. “We hope that having our technicians wear pink slippers will be a creative way to show our support for ongoing research and raise awareness among our customers. Pink stands out and is a real conversation starter.”
Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in American women. According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 300,000 women are diagnosed with new cases of invasive breast cancer each year and approximately one in eight women will develop breast cancer at some point in her life.
Oklahoma Project Woman offers free mammograms, diagnostic procedures, and surgical services to Oklahomans of all ages who lack health insurance and limited financial resources. Since the project began in 1998, the organization has distributed more than 63,000 vouchers for free breast health care to uninsured Oklahomans, 859 of whom have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month was launched in 1985 and is held every October to promote screening and prevention of the disease. The month is known for its pink color theme and features a variety of campaigns and promotions carried out by both cancer advocacy groups and private industry to raise awareness.
“The best protection is early detection, but more research is still needed to find a cure,” Harpole said. “We hope we can help find that cure, helping more Oklahomans get the breast care checkups and treatments they need, and that we can share this important message with our customers.”
