Our team takes great pride in raising awareness for breast cancer research. In the fall we participate in the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walk at Manhattanville college. At our home games in May we wear our Pink Uniforms (equipped with a breast cancer ribbon) in an attempt to raise awareness. Attached to this, we create QR codes for people that attend the game to facilitate donations, as well as a percentage of our concessions go to a breast cancer foundation.
We have an athlete on our team whose mother is a breast cancer survivor. The program personalizes with the situation, and it’s a team effort from our Athletic Director down to the players.
We also have a set of “baby blue” uniforms that we wear on Fridays in April to raise awareness for Autism!
