Pink: More Than A Pretty Color!

Nearly everyone has been impacted by breast cancer at some point in their lives: had a friend, a co-worker, or a family member that was diagnosed. Breast cancer is the leading cancer in women & second most common cancer overall. That is why Uniform Advantage® has partnered with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation® to support research and raise awareness of breast cancer. Uniform Advantage® has donated $20,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation® to support their efforts towards advancing the world’s most promising breast cancer research. Don’t worry, we made sure that you can help too! You can make a donation on give.bcrf.org, and even learn about ways to fundraise safely from home. No amount is too small, and every dollar donated helps fund lifesaving research.

BCRF is the largest private funder of breast cancer research in the world, whose mission is to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research. BCRF-funded investigators have been behind every major breakthrough in breast cancer research, and the field is moving fast than ever, so we can’t stop now. You can visit BCRF.org to learn how to help fuel research.
