MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - The Vikings game took a backseat for dozens of Vikings fans today as they mixed their purple pride with their passion for pink.
"This turnout is unbelievable," said Ryan Rhody, who organized the event.
Rhody's tailgating party dubbed 'Sack Cancer' turned into a fight against cancer as more than 50 guys shaved their heads as a sign of support and a handful of women donated their hair. Money was raised, survivors shared their stories, and nearly everyone at Rhody's party wore pink.
"We won't raise thousands and thousands, but every dollar counts," said Rhody. "My mother was diagnosed in 2001 and my friends have been so supportive."
October is considered breast cancer awareness month.
