For the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, tonight’s Monday Night Football Game means more than 4 quarters of competition and a hopeful win for the Dallas Cowboys. Tonight’s game kicks off the NFL’s Breast Cancer Awareness month. At Halftime, The DCC are proud to share the stage with a cast of 500 breast cancer survivors and co-survivors from Susan G. Komen for the Cure. They will also be joined by 250 Alumnae Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and 60 extraordinary male athletes from Spirit Celebration to present a halftime show that Celebrates Life and solidarity against the worldwide Fight against Breast Cancer.
In 1982, Susan G Komen for the Cure used a pink ribbon to honor the life of a woman who lost her battle to breast cancer. For 30 years now the pink ribbon has represented the strength of women around the world who have battled breast cancer. Wearing it shows support and solidarity in vowing to come together to find a cure for the disease, to help women currently in the struggle, and to encourage yearly breast exams for early detection.
Here’s just a few of the things fans will notice in an effort to “PINK” out Cowboys Stadium to share in the vow to come together to find a cure for the disease.
