Brockamp, co-owner of His Security in Farragut, raised $44,414 for the local American Cancer Society chapter, which was more than 10 percent above his $40,000 goal. The amount not only made him top in the Knoxville campaign, but he also placed 13th in the nation among Real Men Wear Pink campaigns that ran during October, which was Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“I am humbled by the support of the community,” said Brockamp, who was in his second year of fundraising for the cause.
Overall, the Knoxville campaign raised more than $97,000.
“Imagine the help and services that ACS can provide to our neighbors in their fight against breast from the more than $97,000 raised just here in Knoxville, because that is where the money goes,” he said.
Brockamp already is gearing up for 2020, when he and his team will again participate in the campaign.
