Days after this year's Cutters 1,000 Free Pink Pair Giveaway, Anquan Boldin heard about the Pink Gloves and was immediately interested in supporting the cause.

"For me, it's important because everyone out there has been affected in some way - a sibling, a relative, a friend. Personally, I have had two relatives suffer from cancer. It's important to me."

He received special permission from the NFL to wear Pink Gloves in October during a game. Randy Moss was also eager to do his part.

"Cancer affects everybody in some way. If I can do something to help people out, to raise awareness and help raise money - well, that's what it's all about," said Randy Moss. "I want to make a difference."

You can expect to see Boldin (Cardinals), Moss (Patriots), Kevin Walter (Texans), Kelley Washington (Ravens), and others in Cutters Pink in October.

Why pink football gloves? "Cutters' goal is to create thousands of pink glove impressions on football fields across the country in October because this unusual sight will generate additional interest in Breast Cancer Awareness, and hopefully motivate others to get involved," said Laura Beraznik, Cutters' Co-Founder and Brand Manager. "Moreover, the stereotype of a tough, rugged football player represents the incredible strength required and displayed by those fighting cancer."

When asked about fans' reactions to seeing him in Pink, Boldin added, "At first, they might be wondering what's going on, but once they find out I am sure they will understand and support it."

Cutters started giving away free Pink Football Gloves last year to raise awareness. The frenzy around Cutters Pink intensified, including high school players staying up all night to ensure they got a pair; parents coordinating their communications while at work so that they could each order a pair for their sons while they were at school; and teams using Cutters Pink as a launching pad to develop special fundraising events around Friday night games in October.

Gaining the participation of top pros takes this awareness program to the next level. The Pink Gloves used by the pros this season will be auctioned off to raise funds for National Breast Cancer Awareness. Fans can bid on these gloves in November on www.cuttersgloves.com.
