The TFOA is proud to announce our participation in the “PINK CAMPAIGN” for 2016. Effective October 17 – 31, our on field officials will be using pink flags, whistles and lanyards to support the fight against breast cancer as well as promoting an elevated awareness of related health issues facing women and their families.
In combination with the above effort, our members also wanted to find away to participate in the “MOVEMBER CAMPAIGN”. As of November 1st, officials throughout the month of November will be using light blue flags, whistles and lanyards to raise awareness to men’s health issues and the fight against prostate cancer.
In support of the men’s health awareness initiative, the TFOA members have been participating in fundraising activities at our fall meetings. In conjunction with proceeds raised from a golf tournament held in August, the TFOA will be making a donation to a men’s health organization which will be named by the membership at the end of our “campaign”.
The TFOA would like to thank Dave Foxcroft and Fox40 for the donation of the whistles and lanyards that will be used during both of our “campaigns”. Also, thanks goes out to Honig’s Whistle Stop (Canada) Ltd. and Herman Murphy for expediting the manufacturing of all the flags that will be used during the above mentioned dates. To both Dave and Herman, thank you for your participation in our efforts.”
