Texans Tickled Pink Spa Day
The Texans held a Tickled Pink Spa Day for more than 40 breast cancer patients and their caregivers. The ladies were treated to massages, manicures and pedicures, and received a “Look Good, Feel Better” presentation from the American Cancer Society. Bradie James made a visit and surprised each of the patients with a pair of tickets to the Pink Ribbon game and invited them to hold the Texas flag during the pregame festivities.
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
The Texans, a 2012 sponsor of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, started a team open to the public. More than 250 fans raced with Texans Cheerleaders, Lady Texans and staff. Each Texans team member received an exclusive Texans T-shirt. Look for more information this fall to join our 2013 Race for the Cure team!
Pink Ribbon Day presented by Kroger
During the Texans Breast Cancer Awareness game in October, Mrs. McNair, escorted by Mr. McNair, and Debbie Philips, escorted by Bum Phillips, were recognized as the Home field Advantage Captains. Women undergoing breast cancer treatment and their caregivers held the Texas state flag pre-game. In-game video vignettes featured how breast cancer has affected the Houston Texans family from the top down including ownership, coaches, players, cheerleaders, front office staff, and fans. Pink Breast Cancer Awareness ribbons were painted on field, pink pads were on goal posts, and cheerleaders were in pink uniforms. Players, coaches and referees also wore pink wristbands, gloves, hats and shoes during the month of October, and the items were auctioned off at the Texans game day auction, located in section 140. All proceeds from the auction benefited Susan G. Komen.
