October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to show their support, many people dress in pink, and it doesn’t stop there.
During the month of October, there are many different ways that people show their support for breast cancer awareness. One way being that NFL teams, as well as other various sports teams, add a touch of pink to their uniforms.
Many people also get involved by running or walking to raise awareness. Race for the Cure and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer are two popular fundraisers set up to raise money for research.
The reason that pink represents breast cancer is because it is the most common color among women so the campaign chose the pink ribbon to be known worldwide as the symbol for breast cancer.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is also used to educate people about methods of prevention and early detection, and to raise money to support research. Today, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and medical societies work together to promote breast cancer awareness.
Snow College students can show their support for breast cancer awareness month as well. Join the millions of people who support this campaign.

Carson Hoch is a sophomore at Snow College. He comes from West Jordan and had never been part of a newspaper or yearbook staff until coming to Snow. He is a business major and plans on going to Brigham Young University for the next step in his education. This is the first year Carson has been on Senior Staff for the Snowdrift as the Website Coordinator. Carson was inspired to join the newspaper because he’s always had a love for sports and wanted to get a glimpse of the journalism side. A dream of his is to get called at half time to shoot the half-court shot. He’s entered every game he’s been to, but has never been selected. Yet.
