PINEVILLE, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - The team at Cleco kicked off their support for Breast Cancer Research.

The corporation is the signature sponsor for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Cenla and they began fundraising efforts with a pink balloon launch.
 
Cleco representatives say the event is important to raise awareness for breast cancer throughout the company and the community as well.

"We're proud to do an event like this, we've been looking for one that we could be the lead sponsor on and when this opportunity came we were very quick to step up and be part of it because breast cancer has impacted our employees directly and I think it's also a very popular event with the community." Said Bruce Williamson, President and CEO of Cleco Corporation.
 
The names of breast cancer survivors were written on pieces of paper inside each of the pink balloons.
