McIntosh County Health Department "Pinks Out" Football Game
McIntosh County Health Department Staff, in conjunction with Susan G. Komen for the Cure Coastal Georgia Affiliate, "pinked out" the October 25 McIntosh County Academy Buccaneers football game. The "Pink Out" was part of an effort to raise breast cancer awareness in the community. Health department staff set up a breast cancer awareness display to provide information on breast cancer screening for those attending the game. The crowd, football players, and cheerleaders all got in on the action!
