Apex has been participating in the annual 'American Cancer Society Denim Day' since 2017, in our fight against breast cancer!
Denim Days Sponsored by Buckle brings us together to help save lives from breast cancer in a fun and unique way. Denim Days will take place throughout the month of October, with a national day of celebration on October 23, 2020.
Since the event began in 1996, Denim Days participants have raised more than $97.9 million, and Apexers have raised/contributed over $8,000, for the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer programs and services.
Why do we participate? While mortality rates have dropped 40% among women since 1989, this year about 276,480 American women are expected to be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, and 42,170 women are expected to die from the disease. But, together, we are stronger than breast cancer. We are also fighting this year for the several Apexers who are currently fighting this horrible disease!
