Springfield women raising awareness through the Power in Purple
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
A group of women in Springfield is taking a spin off of the Real Men Wear Pink campaign. It's called Power in Purple.
Local women are raising money for the American Cancer Society and also to bring awareness to prostate cancer.
The women are using social media, coin cans, and so much more to raise money.
"It takes a lot of people to bring awareness, assist with fundraising; It can't be done with just a small group of people," volunteer Candice Trees said.
The woman who raises the most money will be recognized in January.
