Staff at ICIO were given the opportunity to wear pink to work, including security, on Friday, October 11th, in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

Staff that were able to make it to the photo shoot were caught at their best. 

Wikipedia notes Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), also referred to in America as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM), as an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.

The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.

Breast cancer awareness month is a yearly campaign that intends to educate people about the importance of early screening, testing and more.

This campaign starts on October 1 and ends on October 31 every year.
