In a prevoius campaign, Owego Mayor Mike Baratta dyed his hair pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.

Village of Owego Mayor Mike Baratta III has been chosen again this year to participate in the Southern Tier’s Real Men Wear Pink Campaign. The Mayor says he will be wearing pink all around town. Baratta says breast cancer affects everyone – it doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman. Thursday is Real Men Wear Pink Day and his goal is to turn the entire Village of Owego PINK! in support of breast cancer awareness.


In 2019, more than 268,600 women are expected to be
newly-diagnosed with breast cancer in the US, and an estimated 41,760 of them are expected to die from the disease.
