The Jamestown and Southwestern Midget Youth Football Leagues, including league cheerleaders, are not only tackling their opponents this season, but breast cancer during the month of October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, by wearing pink socks in honor and support of those affected by breast cancer. The Jock Shop and WCA Hospital have partnered with the area youth leagues to donate back a portion of the proceeds to LINKS Charity that fundraises for local breast cancer care. The leagues have raised more than $1,000 in support of the cause. Alongside the leagues’ efforts, LINKS Charity will host the 6th Annual LINKS Pink Walk Saturday, October 8, inside the Chautauqua Mall. Walkers can register by contacting Megan Barone, WCA Director of Development, at (716) 664-8423 or megan.d’angelo@wcahospital.org.
