Kids across Capital Region wear pink for breast cancer awareness

October is "Breast Cancer Awareness Month."

Lots of kids wore pink on Friday.

The "Real Kids Wear Pink" effort is to raise awareness, and money for breast cancer research.

The effort was founded by 15-year-old Carli O’Hara.

She says this is as good a time as ever to bring attention to the cause.

"I think it just shows how much of a difference us kids can make on this fight against breast cancer," said Carli. "Each year, every kid across the Capital Region really shows up in their pink and it’s really great to see the impact."

This is the fifth year of the campaign.

Carli says she started it because her grandmother is a Stage 4 breast cancer survivor.
