Bills running back Marshawn Lynch, defensive end Ryan Denney and offensive lineman Derrick Dockery believe in their teammates on the field, and 'Billieve' in helping the fight against breast cancer off the field. In support of the Billieve - Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, hundreds of fans visited the Bills Store Tuesday evening as Lynch, Denney and Dockery signed autographs, shook hands, held babies and took pictures as if they were running for president.
Marshawn Lynch arrived early to the event and immediately donned the Billieve pink cap displayed on the autograph tables. Denney and Dockery followed suit with their caps and the fans supported the cause by purchasing Billieve pink logo merchandise including mini-helmets, t-shirts, caps and knit hats for the players to sign. Five dollars from the sale of each Billieve pink logo item will benefit the Western New York Affilliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
The Buffalo Bills, Kaleida Health, the WNY Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Delaware North Companies teamed up to coordinate the event in support of breast cancer awareness month. The Billieve campaign was designed as an education and awareness program to support the Komen for a Cure's ultimate mission to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease and increase the survivor rates through early detection.
