P&G Rallies for BCA

October 14, 2013

Raising funds for NBCF and more.

The Procter & Gamble Company (PG) and the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF) launched the P&G Breast Cancer Awareness campaign to educate not only women, but also the men in their lives, about the importance of early detection.

On Tuesday, Oct. 22, Tillman will lead the charge on encouraging men and women everywhere to spread the message of early detection and create an early detection plan by serving as guest host of the P&G Best Defense Day of Action alongside the Chicago Bears at Halas Hall in Lake Forest, Ill. More than one hundred select local residents, media and social influencers will have the opportunity to meet Tillman, tour the newly redesigned facility, learn about the importance of early detection from NBCF experts, and receive the tools to help them create their own early detection plan.

Since 2008, P&G has donated more than $2.1 million to the NBCF, including a $500,000 donation in 2013.
