Real Men Wear PinkFB-f-Logo__blue_50-(1).png

Players, coaches, parents and supporters in Decatur and its surrounding communities look forward to HSHS St. Mary’s Real Men Wear Pink (RMWP) campaign and local school’s “pink” games every year. In its 11th year, the RMWP campaign has reached thousands around the community and will continue to do so this fall.

The goal of St. Mary’s and our partners, Maverik Marketing, and Neuhoff Media including WSOY-AM, 1050 AM ESPN Decatur and, is to generate awareness for breast cancer prevention and to encourage our mothers, aunts, grandmothers, sisters and loved ones to meet with their doctor to find out if they should get a breast cancer screening. Local football teams join in the effort by hosting a “pink” game during the months of September and October. This year, 15 schools are participating in the campaign. The schools support RMWP any way the can. Some schools sell t-shirts to students and others hold additional breast cancer awareness events.


Mammography uses a low-dose X-ray system to examine breasts. Mammograms can help detect early breast cancer in women experiencing no symptoms, as well as diagnose breast disease in women with lumps, pain or nipple discharge.
