Country Superstar Jason Aldean picked up another award yesterday! Jason has been named ” MORE THAN PINK” Hero by the Susan G Komen Foundation.
Jason, over the years, has donated funds from his concerts to breast cancer research. He has also taken time at shows to give special shoutouts and recognition to survivors. The TASTE OF COUNTRY website said:
Susan G. Komen launched a campaign called More Than Pink to reduce the number of breast cancer deaths by 50 percent over the next decade, and as a part of the initiative, it has created a list of everyday heroes to pay tribute to their dedication.
Aldean has been named alongside scientists, doctors, First Ladies Barbara Bush and Betty Ford, professional athletes and other select individuals who have made significant contributions to the fight against breast cancer. Fans can see Aldean’s name on the official list on the Komen website. The campaign officially kicks off in October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This fall, the artist is teaming up with the Grand Ole Opry for his annual Concert for a Cure, coinciding with its annual Opry Goes Pink initiatives. The show will take place Oct. 25 and will feature Aldean “flipping the switch” to wash the stage in pink lighting.
Just another reason we love Jason – and salute him for his help in fighting breast cancer!
