Tampa, FL -- Florida Hospital Tampa invites you to join them for the 2012 Heroes 'N Heels event on Saturday, March 24th. It will be the 4th year that men have slipped into high heels in support of women's breast health.

These guys collect donations and walk in women's shoes to make a difference. The funds they raise benefit the Florida Hospital Tampa's Breast Care Center's Free Screening Mammogram program. It provides free screening mammograms at no cost to qualifying women in our community, the program was begun in 2008 and continues to grow each year.

The previous three Heroes N Heels raised over $150,000 and the Foundation was able to provide:
• 930 Screening Mammograms
• 121 Diagnostic Mammograms
• 139 Ultrasounds
• 33 Biopsies
• 10 of these cases tested positive for cancer

Sign up on the Heroes N Heels website or email for additional details or sponsorship information.

The March 24th event starts at 8 am at Florida Hospital Tampa located at 3000 Medical Park Drive in Tampa.
