Cowboys team with Komen to fight breast cancer

The Dallas Cowboys are teaming with Susan G. Komen for the Cure

to help fight breast cancer.

The Cowboys have a launched a campaign called ”I Promise”

featuring the team’s blue star logo and the charity’s pink ribbon

icon.

The team will step up its involvement in October, which is

national breast cancer awareness month. Charity founder Nancy

Brinker and Troy Aikman’s mother will be honorary team captains

Oct. 10.

Brinker was among the first people in Dallas to befriend

franchise owners Gene and Jerry Jones when they moved to Texas. The

charity is named for her sister, who died of the disease. Brinker

promised her she would try finding a cure and has become a leader

in the fight.
