Phenix City is recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Mayor Eddie Lowe named October 21 as Paint the Town Pink Day at the city council meeting Tuesday morning.
He also asked residents to remember the cause and help save a life.
"Although it's a small token, we have bought into painting the town pink,” Lowe said. “And that's something we are going to continue to do just to keep reminding people that we can at some point defeat this."
Lowe gave a proclamation to the West Central Georgia Cancer Coalition, naming October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Phenix City will also put out pink ribbons in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.
