Real Men Wear Pink
Count the Henry County Water Authority (HCWA) among those who joined the cause of the Piedmont Henry Hospital Real Men Wear Pink Campaign, hoping to raise awareness among customers and employees of the importance of early detection.
In fact, HCWA Division Manager Scott Harrison was among the dozen local men selected to lead the hospital’s 11thannual breast cancer awareness campaign. With Harrison leading the way, the HCWA encouraged employees to wear pink every Thursday during the month of October, which is recognized nationally as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
In addition, HCWA Human Resources sold raffle tickets, with weekly drawings for prizes. Those efforts raised nearly $800 for the Thomas F. Chapman Family Wellness Center. The HCWA Customer Service Department also had a bake sale for additional fundraising.
The Water Authority encourages its customers to have routine mammograms for early detection of breast cancer for women and men, to prevent deaths from this terrible disease.
