Balfour Beatty Construction Hosts “Pink-Out” Day at Building Sites Across the Triangle

Donned in pink “Raising Awareness” shirts, Balfour Beatty staff will take a break from construction of numerous new buildings across the Triangle, including the future site of Cary’s Green Level High School, to support the Kay Yow Cancer Fund® in its mission to fund women’s cancer research and serve the underserved.

For the third consecutive year, Balfour Beatty employees across the Triangle rallied to raise funds for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. On October 23, 2015, the company will celebrate the culmination of these fundraising efforts during its third annual “Pink-Out” Day.

Staff members across the Triangle will wear pink shirts at construction sites to recognize the effort, and Balfour Beatty will present a donation of approximately $31,000 to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund ‒ more than doubling its donation from 2014.
