Senators sport sneakers to raise cancer awareness

sneakers 050918Senators swapped their wingtips and pumps for sneakers on Thursday during Suits and Sneakers Day at the Capitol.

Each January, the American Cancer Society teams up with the National Association of Basketball Coaches for Suits and Sneakers Awareness Week, during which the coaches wear sneakers instead of dress shoes on the court. The week’s mission is to increase awareness of the pervasiveness of cancer and promote fundraising and healthy living initiatives.

Lawmakers join the movement in May each year, donning sneakers to raise awareness and support the American Cancer Society’s Mission.
