Pink ties for cancer

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Several prominent men in South Bend will wear pink ties for cancer

And today South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg joined the group the Pink Ties Guys.

The big event was sponsored by the Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

The Century Center endured a make-over as well.

Pink lights were placed around the ceremony to remember those who beat the disease.

"The more awareness we can have and the more we can fund research and help these survivors, the stronger our community is gonna be, and I was really proud to be asked to be included in this effort," Buttigieg said.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and this is just one of many events to raise money or a cure.
