Brian Douglas, Q102/WKRQ
Brian is honored to become a 2011 Pink Tie Guy as he has known various family members that have struggled with the devastating disease of breast cancer. Brian wants to get involved in this effort in any way he can and hopes that wearing his Komen Pink Tie will prompt discussions about the importance of early screening and detection as part of breast health for women.

Mike believes that we are all connected to someone who has experienced breast cancer and may be fighting against this disease. To Mike, the Komen Pink Tie is an outward sign of support for those around him struggling with breast cancer and a call to action to find a cure for this devastating disease. Mike and his organization are excited about his honor as one of the 2011 Pink Tie Guys and are looking forward to utilizing this to increase breast health awareness.
Matt Shafer, Kings Island
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.
