Pink Tie Guys are leaders who honor their wives, daughters, sisters, mothers, friends and colleagues who are touched by this disease that knows no boundaries and bring urgency to efforts to find a cure.
In honor of its 30th anniversary, Komen Houston is proud to announce an exciting new initiative to engage men in the breast cancer movement and giving a male voice to the urgency of finding a cure. These men will serve as Komen ambassadors, helping to mobilize, energize and engage others in the KoMEN promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever.
Pink Tie Guys leverage their personal connections, community affiliations and roles within their organizations to inform, influence and inspire our community to take action against breast cancer. Pink Tie Guys pledge to make a difference by wearing their signature pink Komen tie and sparking conversations about breast health, breast cancer disparities and the power we each have to affect change. These men exemplify the mantra “real men wear pink” because they know that pink is a symbol of hope, courage and strength.

- Serve as ambassadors of Komen Houston by wearing the signature pink Komen tie and speaking out about the importance of early detection and breast self-awareness.
- Attend Komen Houston events and activities, when available, including but not limited to the annual Komen Houston Race for the Cure® in October and More Than PinkTM Luncheon in March.
