TUNICA, Miss., October 5, 2018 – Caesars Entertainment including Horseshoe Tunica and Tunica Roadhouse casinos in Tunica, Mississippi kicked off Breast Cancer Awareness Month yesterday with an employee health education event.

Approximately 50 Caesars employees gathered Wednesday, October 3 at 9 a.m. outside the Caesars Mid-South Wellness Center to participate in a 15-minute walk, Zumba workout, celebration, and human cancer ribbon formation photo. Employees were also instructed on how to implement low energy workouts into their daily routines to help promote good health and a healthy lifestyle.

The employees all wore their Breast Cancer Awareness shirts, which are available for purchase at Horseshoe Tunica and Tunica Roadhouse with proceeds benefitting the American Cancer Society. Cancer Awareness shirts are available in short-sleeve, long-sleeve, and hoodies. Pink breast cancer awareness survivor shirts are also available.

“October is an exciting month for us as we are all dedicated and passionate about supporting the American Cancer Society and breast cancer awareness. Though we support the American Cancer Society throughout the year through volunteering and donations, we are really motivated in October with our month-long efforts concluding with our largest fundraiser for the ACS, the Battle of the Bras on Friday, November 2,” said R. Scott Barber, Regional President, Caesars Mid-South.
