Augusta (WFXG)- October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month; and in support, Augusta Regional Airport (AGS) presents the ‘Field of Pink’ display. The Field of Pink consists of pink flags planted around the Airport entrance sign, honoring those who have fought the breast cancer battle. The commemorative flags will remain in place for the entire month of October.
Everyone is invited to join the Airport in the effort to bring awareness to this terrible disease that affects one out of every eight women in the US.
The Airport has extra pink flags for sale to the public for one dollar ($1), although larger contributions are welcomed and appreciated. All monies received will be donated to the University Health Care Foundation to support the Annual Miracle Mile Walk scheduled for October 20, 2018, which raises money for the fight against breast cancer.
To join the cause, simply go to the Airport receptionist located on the second floor of the passenger terminal building during regular office hours (8am – 5pm, Monday – Friday). Write the name of a friend or loved one impacted by breast cancer on one or more of the pink flags and they will be placed in the display shortly after.
The ‘Field of Pink’ display will be an annual event at Augusta Regional Airport with the expectation of growing the display and community participation in years to come.
