Team members raised money by holding a Chili Cook-Off and by selling pink accessories.

 

"Iā€™m proud of our team for supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month,ā€ says REI president Jen Nieuwenhuis. "It sends a message of hope for the many members of our community fighting the disease.ā€

 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month which is a national annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women in the United States. Early detection has led to an increase of survival.
