The Cincinnati Bengals will support the NFL’s “A Crucial Catch” campaign when they host the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8, the team announced Tuesday.

This comes in light of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this will serve as the Bengals’ Breast Cancer Awareness game, presented by team partner TriHealth.

During Sunday’s game, survivors and caregivers will be recognized during pregame ceremonies, including the unveiling of an oversized pink ribbon on the field, courtesy of TriHealth. There will also be a presentation revealing the 2017 winner of the Marvin Lewis Community Fund Pink Football Award.

TriHealth will distribute information at their Women’s Services Van in the pregame Jungle Zone area, and TriHealth will give pink flags to women as they enter the gates, while supplies last. Also, more than 100 members of Zeta Tau Alpha will distribute pink ribbons to fans as part of their “Think Pink” program.
