October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Borgata is doing its part to make its guests aware of the disease which is the second leading cause of death among American women.
1-in-8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, making it the most diagnosed cancer in women in the United States. According to estimates, over 252,710 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,500 will die from the disease. However, over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the United States today.
In order to bring awareness to Borgata guests, the resort will shine pink lights from The Water Club’s Immersion Spa and turn its signature Borgata sign the same color throughout October. Additionally, Borgata team members will participate at a breast cancer awareness walk on the Ocean City Boardwalk.
