A Crucial Catch

October
On behalf of the National Football League, the Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers, Philadelphia Eagles, and the American Cancer Society, we want to invite you to join us in supporting A Crucial Catch in October for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Last October, you may have noticed NFL coaches and players wearing pink hats, towels, pins, and cleats in support of the fight against breast cancer. This year, we are asking high school football coaches nationwide to join us in a unified stance with NFL coaches to help create a world with “less breast cancer and more birthdays.” Join the National Football League in the Fight Against Breast Cancer! During the season, your school or youth team can choose one home game and designate it as a breast cancer awareness game where players and coaching staff can wear school - provided special pink uniforms, wristbands, shoelaces, etc. The game can also be named in memory or in honor of someone from the school or community who has either successfully fought or been lost to cancer.
