North Charleston goes pink for breast cancer awareness

Tailgate for the Cure

From buildings to employees, the City of North Charleston is going pink this week to raise breast cancer awareness; October 22-29, 2012.

Throughout the week, city facilities will be decorated pink, city employees will wear pink attire, and the City’s pink Fire Truck can be seen around town. Even City Hall has gone pink. At night, the exterior of City Hall is lit in bright pink, along with our fire stations, the Power House on the former Navy Base, and the Greater Charleston Naval Base Memorial at Riverfront Park.

North Charleston Mayor R. Keith Summey said, “This is an effort put forth by our employees to show our support for women, men, and families that are battling the ill effects of breast cancer. It’s encouraging to see the enthusiasm of so many North Charleston employees in raising awareness.”

All residents and businesses are encouraged to participate.


  1. This is a great advocacy. After my left breast was removed after the operation, I knew I will soon deal with my self-confidence. I am thankful to my husband who was with me through all the ordeals and allowed me to have breast implants in perth.

  2. I applaud your advocacy. Both of my sister's breasts were removed because of tumor. She's completely recovered and her doctor already told her that she's completely cleared of the cancer cells. Now, she's trying to decide if she can have breast implants in perth just to improve on her self-esteem.
