MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT)- United Way of Central Georgia announced Monday, it’s kicking off “Pink Promise United” along with the second annual Cornhole Tournament.
The new initiative provides breast cancer awareness, education, and screening mammograms for women in need.
United Way of Central Georgia President & CEO, George McCanless, says the initiative was created to help fill the void with the loss of the local Susan G. Komen chapter.
“It’s all about social health determinants, and research shows that especially lower-income women who don’t have insurance or are under insured skip on having a mammogram,” McCanless said. “What we’re trying to do is make sure that they don’t have to decide that.”
