Island guys unite to fight breast cancer with Real Men Wear Pink

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday evening a reveal event was held to kick off the American Cancer Society's "Real Men Wear Pink" campaign.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and last night at the AK showroom, a reveal event was held, presenting the eight men who are part of the "Real Men Wear Pink" campaign.

In its second year on Guam, the eight men will unite to fight breast cancer with the American Cancer Society. This year's candidates are: Dr. Felix Cabrera, Nate Denight, Tom Garcia, Glenn Noket, Dr. Joel Rubio, Joe San Agustin, Francis Santos and Steven Pangelinan.

ACS volunteer Joe Rios explains how the eight gentlemen will represent the campaign and the core values of ACS. "Passion is the first one. Innovation is another," he said.

There is also empathy, courage and determination. By committing to be a candidate, the eight have also agreed to fundraise at least $2,500 to go towards ACS' mission of breast cancer awareness, wear pink every day during the month of October, and educate and raise awareness through their personal and social network.

Tina Noket, Senior Community Development Manager for ACS, announced, "Dangkulo na si yuus maase, to everyone, to our candidates and to their families, thank you so much for taking that step and leading our world free from breast cancer. Good on luck on your campaigns and we're excited to see what you guys can bring."

And make sure to catch our five part series "Why Real Men Wear Pink" beginning Monday, October 22nd, as we'll introduce to some of this year's candidates.
