Albany Recreation and Park encourage you to wear pink

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Recreation and Parks Department is encouraging you to wear pink Friday.
It will be their second annual "Pink Day" for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in collaboration with the Dougherty County School System.
They're also asking businesses to participate with ribbons, bows, or balloons.


"We're talking everyone wear pink to represent Breast Cancer,” said Tee Taylor, Organizer. “Show our support because you might be passing someone on the street and they might have breast cancer but if they look around and see you with that pink on, they'll say Wow that is for me."
 

Next Saturday, they'll have their Forty-Four shades of Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Seminar at Lockett Station Community Center at 11 a-m.
