Paint the farm pink


MARATHON CITY (WAOW) --  They're taking aim at a very serious health concern.  It is a shot in the battle against breast cancer.

Pink is the color commonly associated with breast cancer awareness.  You can see plenty of it at Marathon Feed Inc. They more pink you see, the more money they make.

"It is important, at events like these to promote breast health awareness for rural women because they might not have access to the information," Amanda Boreen, Breast Care Coordinator for the Marshfield Clinic said.

Raising awareness was what this event is all about.  The money raised is split between the cancer care centers at Wausau Aspirus Hospital and Marshfield Clinic.

Marathon Feed Inc will hold another "Paint the Farm Pink" event on Saturday at Marathon Town and Country in Wausau from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
