County Commissioners & County Manager promoted THINK PINK for October's Breast Cancer Awareness with pink ties!
Rockingham County Commissioners and County Manager Lance Metzler helped to promote THINK PINK for October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month!  Their bright pink ties stood out at the regular meeting of the Rockingham County Board of Commissioners, Monday night, Oct. 7th.  This "ON-THE-ROAD" meeting was held in Reidsville at the Williamsburg Fire Dept.  

Earlier on Monday, county leaders and staff captured photographs and a video to promote Breast Cancer Awareness with the team chanting "fight breast cancer" and "fight like a girl."  
Their THINK PINK video and photos were shot in front of a brand, new Rockingham County, patriotically painted, EMS ambulance, with a pink, magnetic breast cancer awareness ribbon attached to the front doors. 

ALL Rockingham County EMS ambulances have a pink, magnetic, breast cancer awareness ribbon attached to the front doors.  Since Oct. is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Rockingham County's Emergency Services (EMS) Director Rodney Cates and the Emergency Services staff are educating the community by wearing pink shirts every day of the month to push THINK PINK!  

THINK PINK FOR BREAST CANCER AWARENESS IN OCTOBER will give county staff members a time to also show collective support for breast cancer survivors like Rockingham County 9-1-1 Telecommunicator & Eden Rescue Squad Volunteer, Emily Thacker.  She had a double mastectomy on Oct. 1st; followed by reconstructive surgery; and possibly chemo and radiation afterwards.
