Three forces have joined together in the battle against breast cancer – Fulton Homes, 98.7 The Peak, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio, all uniting for a good cause. Throughout the month of October, Peak listeners are encouraged to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation by purchasing a pair of Sheriff Joe’s legendary pink boxers.
The Sheriff is notorious for making inmates wear pink underwear as a method to control inventory. Ironically, these boxers have created quite a demand among the public and Fulton Homes has channeled proceeds towards a good cause. Sheriff Joe will be signing this limited edition novelty item; date and location will be announced soon.
“ This detrimental disease is unfortunately on the rise,” noted Douglas Fulton, CEO of Fulton Homes. “ Fulton Homes is committed to standing behind the battle against breast cancer and supporting the search for a cure.”
Sheriff Joe Arpaio adds, “ I am proud to support this wonderful organization and encourage people to take action by buying a pair of pink boxers.”
Proceeds from pink boxers customarily assist The Maricopa County Youth Assistance Foundation (YAF), a non-profit organization which supports programs that prevent youth violence and promotes social development, good role models, and positive interaction with law enforcement.
Breast cancer is on the rise: It is estimated that about 192,370 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in American women in 2009. According to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, in 1975 the incidence of breast cancer was 107 per 100,000 for white women and 94 per 100,000 for black women. Thirty years later in 2005, the number of new cases per year had risen to 126 per 100,000 for white women and 114 per 100,000 for black women. Purchasing a pink boxer assists in finding a cure for this deadly disease, as well as bringing awareness to breast cancer prevention.
