Pink Ribbon Day
Each year the Texans mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October by turning the stadium pink. In 2013, as fans entered the stadium, they were given a pink card, provided by Kroger, asking the question, “Who do you stand for?” Then when prompted fans held up their cards with the name of their loved one. Janice McNair and Debbie Phillips, wife of the late Bum Phillips, as well as Texans staff members, who are all breast cancer survivors, served as Coin Toss Captains. Escorted by her son, cornerback Kareem Jackson, Rossalyn Jackson, a two-time breast cancer survivor, was recognized as the Homefield Advantage Captain. In 2014, fans turned the stadium pink thanks to breast cancer awareness cards provided by Kroger. Fans affected by breast cancer and their caregivers chosen by an online contest held the Texans flag as the National Anthem was sung by an all-women’s chior. Texans staff members affected by breast cancer, including the First Lady of the Texans Janice McNair, were the coin toss captains, and the Eli Young Band performed some of their favorite hits at halftime while photos of fans using the hashtag #Texans4BCA scrolled on the video board.
Survivor Appreciation Event
In conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Texans work with the American Cancer Society to honor breast cancer survivors in the Houston area. In 2013, The Texans invited 25 breast cancer survivors and a guest to enjoy an once-in-a-lifetime gameday experience. They were treated to a pre-game brunch in the exclusive Churrascos Club and were honored on field standing with Nancy Curtis during the singing of the National Anthem. Afterwards, they received pink swag bags that included pink t-shirts, caps, pom poms and other fun pink gameday goodies. In 2014, the Texans surprised breast cancer survivor Laura Holmes with a visit from Houston Texans Cheerleaders and cornerback Kareem Jackson at her office. Laura received tickets to the October 9 Breast Cancer Awareness game for her and her family, a membership to the Houston Zoo, a gift certificate for dinner for 10 at a Cordua Restaurant, and more. The Texans surprised four other survivors with Cheerleaders, pink swag bags, tickets to the October 9 BCA game and other gifts to help them while they fight this disease.
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
As a 2013 sponsor of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, the Texans hosted a race team open to all Texans fans. More than 360 fans raced with Texans Cheerleaders, Lady Texans and staff. Each Texans team member received an exclusive Texans t-shirt. The Texans team raised more than $15,700 for Komen Race for the Cure. In 2014, the Texans fielded a team of over 200 participants, which included fans, Texans Cheerleaders, Lady Texans and staff raising over $10,000 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation which contributed to an overall $40,000 donation in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
