Pink Ribbon Day
As fans entered the stadium at our Pink Ribbon Day game, they were given a pink card, provided by Kroger, asking the question, “Who do you stand for?” Then when prompted by Kroger President Bill Breetz, Houston Texans Ambassador Steve McKinney and his grandmother Pat Sherbrook, a breast cancer survivor, fans held up their cards with the name of their loved one. Janice McNair & 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.
Survivor Appreciation Event
Through the American Cancer Society, 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.
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.
