TOUGH ENOUGH TO WEAR PINK CAMPAIGN OCT. 4-8 ON CAMPUS

MANHATTAN -- The fifth annual K-State Tough Enough to Wear Pink Campaign will be Oct. 4-8 at Kansas State University.

Members from the Collegiate Cattlewomen and K-State's Alpha Omega chapter of Sigma Alpha, the professional agricultural sorority, have joined forces for this year's campaign.

Tough Enough to Wear Pink T-shirts will be sold near the K-State Student Union food court from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 4-7. The shirts are $10 for sizes adult small through 2XL, and $15 for sizes 3XL-5XL.

T-shirts also can be ordered online at http://www.asi.ksu.edu/TETWP. The cost is $15 a shirt, which includes shipping.

The group will have a free barbecue on the Weber Hall lawn from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 7; rain location will be the Weber Hall Arena. T-shirts also will be for sale at the barbecue.

A new event for the K-State Tough Enough to Wear Pink Campaign will be a silent auction. Items will be available for viewing at the Union and at the barbecue, with the winners announced at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 7.

Beth Holz, senior in agricultural communications and political science, is the donations chair for the K-State Tough Enough to Wear Pink Campaign.

"We're really excited to start the silent auction," Holz said. "The committee decided we wanted another avenue to raise funds for Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the auction would be an interesting way to get more faculty and those outside of campus involved."

All proceeds from the T-shirt sales and silent auction items will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Mid-Kansas Affiliate, based in Wichita. In 2009 the K-State Tough Enough to Wear Pink Campaign donated $12,500 to the fight against breast cancer.
