Birmingham goes pink Friday

By Ashley Nix

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Birmingham will "go pink" once again this year.  

City Hall, the fountains at Linn Park, and other city facilities will be lit up at night with pink lights.  In addition, UAB Hospital will participate and a normally yellow cab is painted pink too!

Birmingham city leaders will wear pink and turn city hall into a lighter shade on the color wheel, too.

The hope is to bring awareness to mammograms and other preventative measures for both men and women.

Doctors say one in every eight women is diagnosed with breast cancer.
