October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM).
Miss Utah 2017, JessiKate Riley has chosen to join the Susan G. Komen organization of Utah to raise funds and awareness to end breast cancer.
She’s joined the effort as a Komen BigWig, which means she’ll be wearing a pink wig out in public as she fundraises for local programs and national research. Of her participation she said,
“As Miss Utah and through the Miss America Organization, I’m a part of the largest scholarship provider for women in the world! It felt natural to be part of BigWigs, another organization, and cause that empowers women.”
