In it’s seventh year, the Pink Tie Guy program involves men in our communities who have been touched by breast cancer and have chosen to bring urgency to finding the cures! These men are an exclusive group who are committed to the local fight against this horrible disease! They are helping to promote the messages of early detection, community support, and are committed to raising funds to help support Susan G. Komen® Central Tennessee’s mission to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in break through research to prevent and cure breast cancer.

Not only are we asking that these men wear pink ties, we are asking that they, and our entire community, joins us in being More Than Pink! Susan G. Komen® has announced a Bold Goalto decrease breast cancer mortality by 50% in the United States by 2026.  Every year, 41,000 women and men die in the United States from breast cancer – that needs to end! Join us in doing more than wearing a pink ribbon!

Join the Fight – Be More Than Pink!

  1. Act – tell your stories of early detection; get screened when needed; and support the women and men who are battling breast cancer.
  2. Donate – not all donations require a checkbook – donate your time, encouragement, talents, etc.
  3. Get Involved – speak out about breast cancer and early detection; speak out about Susan G. Komen® Central Tennessee and the good things we are doing in our communities. Register for the More Than Pink Walks, attend our Survivor Celebrations and support other fundraisers throughout the year.

Susan G. Komen® and the “pink movement” has came a long way in the past 35 years and now, we are setting a bold new course! These Pink Tie Guys are helping to lead the way! They are fighting for the women, and men, in their lives, in the communities, and for generations to come. We invite each of you to join them in their journey!
