DLA Distribution Anniston “Pink Out” supports breast cancer awareness

By Diana Dawa DLA Distribution Public Affairs

The Defense Logistics Agency Distribution, Anniston, Alabama, family came together for their fifth annual “Pink Out” Oct. 20 to support those affected by breast cancer and bring awareness to their community.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.  While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget, or don’t take the time to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages. This awareness campaign encourages people to be proactive and to inspire others to do the same.

Each year DDAA employees are asked to wear something pink to recognize the campaign and to increase breast cancer awareness. This event helps supporters of the cause to come together and continue to build awareness and encouragement for continued research.

“The Culture Committee here at DDAA has hosted this event every year. Each time, we ask employees to wear pink and commemorate the event with a group photo and it’s something the employees now look forward to every October,” said DDAA Commander, Army Lt. Col. Toby Williford.
