October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and KOLD News 13 is teaming up with Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The campaign is called "31 Days of Pink Action" and it begins this weekend.

You can help by eating yogurt. Yoplait will donate 10 cents for every pink lid you turn in. It's called the "save lids - save lives" campaign.

You can also join the El Tour de Tucson riders for the cure training group. They meet up every Saturday morning.

You can also head out to Park Place Mall Saturday at noon to witness the Live Strong-Komen flash dance, and The Melting Pot is offering up special meals all month long. Part of the proceeds go to Susan G. Komen for southern Arizona.
