Since it's Breast Cancer Awareness month, make sure to come out this weekend to watch the field hockey team take on Towson at 1:00 on Sunday, October 17th. This will be our spirit game for the season as well as a fundraiser for Play 4 the Cure. This organization is very important to our team because it helps raise money for the Susan G. Koman Foundation that supports breast cancer awareness and research. The goal of this organization is to help find a cure through raising money at field hockey games and events. Some of the ways you can choose to give money is through individual donations or giving a predetermined amount of money for every goal scored or for every offensive corner that is earned.
This Foundation is especially important to me because the founder, Tina Reinprecht, was my field hockey high school and club coach. Every year we would dedicate a game and tournament to raise money for Play 4 the Cure. It's great to be able to give to a great cause through the sport you play and love.
So come support the field hockey team and the Play 4 the Cure foundation and don't forget to wear pink this Sunday! Pink bands will also be sold at Sunday's game and proceeds will benefit Play 4 the Cure.
