Tulsa County turns pink to support breast cancer awareness

TULSA - Dozens gathered Friday sporting pink shirts, robes and even wigs in support of breast cancer awareness.

Tulsa County District Judge Caputo said he wears his pink robe with pride.

"Almost two years ago when I was sworn in I had this robe special made to wear for the entire month of October," Caputo said.

Everybody in this city and beyond has been touched by someone who's been affected by cancer, Director of Turn Tulsa Pink Judi Grove said.

Turn Tulsa Pink provides services for women and children affected by cancer.

An industrial pink truck serves as a symbol of support and is a tribute to the ones that have survived and the ones that we have lost.

"I think that anything that happens that brings awareness is going to bring attention and where it brings attention it's going to generate some kind of response and hopefully it's a positive response for the elimination of Breast Cancer," Caputo said.
