VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO RECOGNIZE WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9, 2022 AS "SUITS AND SNEAKERS DAY" IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND TO HONOR CANCER PATIENTS, SURVIVORS, AND THEIR FAMILIES.
Whereas, Suits and Sneakers is a collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network leveraging the personal experiences, community leadership, and professional excellence of coaches nationwide to increase cancer awareness and promote healthy living through year-round awareness efforts, fundraising activities, and advocacy programs; and
Whereas, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network empowers advocates across the State to make their voices heard and influence evidence-based public policy change that will reduce the cancer burden on our State; and
Whereas, it is estimated that more than 33,000 South Carolinians will be diagnosed with cancer in 2022; and
Whereas, cancer patients face countless challenges associated with their diagnoses, including physical, emotional, financial, and day-to-day challenges; and
Whereas, as South Carolina continues to navigate through tough legislation, it is more important than ever to support efforts to combat cancer; and
Whereas, not only will effective policies prevent, detect, and treat cancer and save countless lives, but they will also significantly reduce the financial strain this disease places on South Carolinians and our great State. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
That the members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, recognize Wednesday, March 9, 2022 as "Suits and Sneakers Day" in South Carolina and to honor cancer patients, survivors, and their families.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to the organizers of "Suits and Sneakers Day."
