In support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, AEP employees at JES Holdings wore pink to raise awareness on Friday, October 28, 2016.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual campaign aimed at increasing the awareness of the disease for both men and women. The goal is to help all people affected with breast cancer through early detection, education and different support services.
As part of the JES Holdings Wellness Initiative, all employees were challenged to wear pink, and JES Holdings pledged to donate $5 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for every employee wearing pink.
In total, 27 people in the Missouri office and 16 people in the Georgia office wore pink. With a total of 43 people participating, JES Holdings raised $215 to donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
