Billieve Breast Cancer Awareness
As a part of the NFL’s month-long Crucial Catch initiative, Sunday’s Billieve game will promote breast cancer awareness through a number of gameday activities, a gate giveaway, player and fan gear, and pink on the field and throughout Ralph Wilson Stadium. Breast cancer survivors will be recognized on the field during a pregame ceremony celebrating their years of survivorship, and two of those survivors will be a part of the commemorative pink game ball delivery. The Akron and Albion 10-11 year old youth football teams of the Niagara Orleans Football Association will scrimmage in pink gear at halftime, mirroring the gear worn by Bills players during the game. Billieve breast cancer awareness merchandise will be sold throughout the stadium with a portion benefitting the fight against breast cancer, as well as pink ribbon cookies sold in the club seating areas, to benefit the ECMC Lifeline Foundation’s Mobile Mammography Coach.
