Pink Tie Guys is an awareness campaign featuring prominent men from the Greater Cincinnati community who serve as Ambassadors for breast health. By simply wearing a special Komen Pink Ribbon logo tie at community events, these men hope to spark conversations about the importance of early detection; the best protection against breast cancer. The Pink Tie Guy initiative is also aimed at engaging more men in the breast cancer movement and empowering them to be involved in women's health issues.

Matt watched as members of his wife's family fought breast cancer. His passion to "get involved" and do more than watch prompted him to get involved with the Greater Cincinnati Affiliate for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. In an effort to get involved in the fight against breast cancer, Matt will sport his Komen Pink Tie at Kings Island for the Cure events as he feels that this honor is a way that he can fight for a cure and encourage others to get involved in this powerful effort as well.
