Susan G. Komen® St. Louis Pink Tie Guys

The Susan G. Komen® St. Louis Pink Tie Guys are partners in the Komen promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever.

These men are leaders in our community who can help mobilize, energize and engage audiences in the breast cancer movement through their role within the community, within their organizations, and through their personal involvement.

The Komen St. Louis Class of 2014 Pink Tie Guys includes eight men -- plus one very special mascot -- representing the St. Louis Cardinals organization.

A woman in the United States has a 1 in 8 lifetime risk of developing breast cancer. The eight men (and one mascot) in this Pink Tie Guys class understand the importance of calling attention to the deadly disease and encouraging year-round action to benefit breast health.

Each Pink Tie Guy has received a Komen-inspired necktie to wear throughout the year to raise awareness, inspire involvement and support efforts to fight breast cancer in our community. These men bring male voices to the urgency of ending breast cancer forever by speaking out about taking action and doing everything possible to find the cures.

Komen St. Louis is committed to the mission of saving lives and ending breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.
