The NFL and NFL Players Association supported October's National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with its largest on-field presence reflected in pink shoes, arm bans, clothing accents, and the like. For their part, the Chicago Bears through Bears Cares, again sponsored its Real Bears Fans Wear Pink event during October.
