Pink promotes breast cancer awareness at Lambeau

Posted:
GREEN BAY (AP) -

You might notice the color pink at Lambeau Field during Sunday's Green Bay Packers-Detroit Lions game.

The Green Bay Packers and Bellin Health, along with the NFL, are working to promote breast cancer awareness in October.

The lighting above the Bellin Health Gate has been replaced with pink lighting to show support for the cause. The game ball, toss coin, field art, goal post padding and in-stadium posters and banners will all be pink and will display a breast cancer message.  Players, coaches and officials will wear something pink.

Thirty breast cancer survivors will be special guests Sunday and will welcome the players onto the field.

The NFL's national breast cancer awareness campaign is called A Crucial Catch. The campaign continues throughout the month around the NFL.
