Breast Cancer Awareness Month

BreastCancerAwareness

October is not just a month of warm autumn thoughts; it is a month dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness. The Women of Greyhound Racing is supporting this month’s breast cancer awareness with featured races and donations to nonprofit charities.

The Women of Greyhound Racing celebrate all the ladies involved in the greyhound industry. They also raise funds towards breast cancer awareness every October. This is their third year raising money for breast cancer charities through auctions and sales of merchandise. If you are interested in donating to the Women of Greyhound Racing’s cause, please e-mail leslie@gogreatdog.com or visit them on Facebook.

Greyhound Channel will be doing its part to promote breast cancer awareness through our upcoming Howl-o-ween Contest. Anyone with a #HalloweenHound can participate by taking a picture of their pup in a Halloween costume and submitting it to our Facebook page. All breeds are eligible and you do not need to be a Greyhound Channel account holder to enter and win. For every entry we receive, we will donate $2 to the Women of Greyhound Racing’s breast cancer awareness campaign.

Palm Beach is also supporting breast cancer awareness by having a “pink” race every Saturday this month. During these races, all the greyhounds in the race dawn pink blankets. For the final “pink” race on October 31, Palm Beach will feature their best greyhounds with the “On Track to Beat Cancer” award race. They are also giving out “On Track To Beat Cancer” shirts for a donation of $20 that will then be given to local charities such as American Cancer Society, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, National Canine Cancer Foundation and Lake Worth Christian’s Dig Pink & Connie Vanderwey Memorial Scholarship. Below is a look at today’s “pink” race!

Enjoy your month and remember to think pink!
