Breast cancer affects women and men. The disease does not care what gender you are. In an effort to raise awareness about breast cancer ‘One Tree Hill’ star Robert Buckley has gone pink. He is supporting breast cancer research and helping raise awareness by joining Mike’s Hard Lemonade in the fight against a cancer that is the most common among women and also affects 2 percent of men. Buckley proudly shows his support of Mike’s Hard Lemonade’s efforts to combat the disease by wearing a Fight Hard. Go Pink. t-shirt, joining in Mike’s Hard Pink Lemonade campaign and by “pinking” his facebook profile page via an application found on Mike’s Hard Pink Lemonade’s facebook page.
In February 2010, Buckley was involved in DoSomething.org’s Teens for Jeans campaign which helps provide jeans to homeless youth in communities across the nation. He has also participated in Kissing for a Cause, a campaign fundraiser for the National AIDS Foundation and has joined in the annual Key to the Cure charity shopping event held in NYC by Sak’s.
Mike’s Hard Lemonade will be making a $250,000 donation to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and hopes you will join them in raising awareness through the end of this month. Here is how you can join the ‘One Tree Hill’ star in raising awareness about breast cancer research and win your very own Fight Hard. Go Pink. t-shirt:
