Here are some very creative and fun ways that the NTCC family can support Breast Cancer Awareness. Join us in the fight to find a cure. The first step in fighting the battle is showing that you care. SHOW YOU CARE, BE AWARE!

  • Tie a pink ribbon to your car antenna.
  • Tie pink ribbons on the branches of a small tree in the campus plaza.
  • Decorate your office door with pink fall mums.
  • Paint a pumpkin pink and place them around the campus plaza.
  • Make cupcakes or cookies, decorate them with pink icing then share them with students and your colleagues.
  • Participate in a cancer walk or fundraiser.Pink Rain Walk-A-Dollar-THON Date: Wednesday, October 21, 2020 Time: 12:25-1:05 p.m.  Start Location: The Student Services Center  
  • Invest in and pass out pink bracelets. Give them to members of the NTCC campus community.
  • Make encouragement cards to take to our local cancer treatment center. Ask the staff to pass them along to patients receiving chemotherapy.
  • Volunteer! Check with your local cancer treatment center about volunteer opportunities. Perhaps you can provide transportation for a chemotherapy patient.
  • Change your profile picture on Facebook or other social networking sites with a pic of pink ribbons in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
  • Share links to blogs and articles about breast cancer on your Twitter and Facebook accounts.
  • Put a streak of pink in your hair. If you don't want to go permanent, many fashion and jewelry stores have hair adornments that would service the purpose and would look like a streak of pink hair. It would probably even get enough attention that a few people might ask you why you have pink in your hair and you could tell them.
  • Make an appointment with your family physician to find out about getting a mammogram for yourself. Fighting breast cancer and raising awareness about this disease starts with taking care of you and your health.


Ready, Set, Go Pink!
