Kienlen Constructors and Hillsdale Fabricators are a sea of pink throughout the month of October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In addition to the hard hats and safety glasses you normally see, crews are also wearing pink safety shirts to raise awareness of the illness.
“We have all been affected by this terrible disease in some way, whether it has challenged us personally or someone we know. Our crews are happy to demonstrate our support and hopefully deliver a message of comfort for those who are fighting the battle,” said Jason Silkebaken, Director of Project Development for Kienlen Constructors.
According to cancer.org, women living in the U.S. have a 12.4%, or 1 in 8, lifetime risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer. Thank you to these crews for giving from their own pockets to make a donation toward breast cancer research.
