EIGHT ACRE CORN MAZE FEATURES BREAST CANCER SURVIVORS DRESSED IN PINK
MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. - October 18, 2013 - The month of October is colored pink all across the world on behalf of breast cancer awareness and the fight against breast cancer. Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, SC has joined this worldwide effort in a large way…literally. The eight acre corn maze at the plantation is one of the largest in the Southeastern United States and this year has been developed with a design that celebrates the 20th Anniversary Of The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
But as if the giant corn maze on behalf of breast cancer awareness wasn't dramatic enough, Boone Hall Plantation has taken support for the cause one step further. Recently in unveiling the maze, the ribbon portion of the maze was filled with approximately 200 breast cancer survivors, family members, and supporters of the cause, all dressed in signature pink T-shirts and gloves, who waved enthusiastically for aerial videography and photography of the maze.
