By Wayne Ivey, Brevard Sheriff // October 2, 2018
'Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk' Set For Saturday, October 27
EDITOR’S NOTE: Message from the desk of Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey.
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – As everyone knows, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and is also the time of year when you see a lot more folks wearing pink to show their support for those who have been taken from us way to early and those who are currently battling this horrific disease.
While “Sheriff’s Office Green” will always without question be my favorite color, this year our Chief Deputy Doug Waller, Chief Alan Moros, Chief Mike Demorat, and I will be wearing pink badges during the month of October to show our agency’s support and to help bring awareness to prevention.
As part of our awareness and support initiative, during the month of October, our entire agency is authorized to wear pink ribbons on their uniforms and our civilian members can wear pink attire to signify how we all work together to support those who have been impacted by Breast Cancer in our community and nation.
In addition, we would love to see as many of our citizens as possible join us as we partner together to help find a cure for Breast Cancer.
As I always say “it takes a community to protect a community” and fighting Breast Cancer is something we can all do together!
We would also like to invite you to join our team at this year’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, Saturday October 27th at the Avenue in Viera.
The walk starts at 9:00 a.m. so get your pink on and join us as we all work together to make a difference!
– Sheriff Wayne Ivey
