MOUNT PLEASANT - Breast Cancer Awareness Month may be drawing to a close, but the Central Michigan Athletics Department’s efforts to raise money and awareness for the cause through Chips For A Cure are still going strong.
Through soccer’s efforts at Kick Away Cancer day, volleyball’s Dig Pink night, various marketing department efforts and Dr. Vincent Mumford’s PES 320 course, more than $5,290 has been raised to benefit cancer research and the victims of cancer.
The total will grow this weekend as field hockey hosts Stick It To Cancer Day Saturday, Oct. 27, when it takes on Kent State for the regular season MAC Championship at noon. In support of the cause the players will be sporting pink items throughout their warm-up and the match.
Fans are encouraged to support field hockey’s fundraising efforts by donating to the National Foundation for Cancer Research. The link can be found in “quick links” section at the top of the article.
Fans can also assist PES 320’s fundraising efforts for the Angel Wings Fund by purchasing pink adidas “AllFight” t-shirts. Proceeds from the shirts, which are $10 apiece, will go to the Angel Wings Fund, a local charity that benefits children who have lost parents or guardians to cancer.
