"In honor of breast cancer awareness month, Tufts University's athletic teams will be participating in the second annual Play for Pink Event. Fall sports teams will be competing primarily on October 26th in addition to other dates to raise money for the organization: Living Beyond Breast Cancer.
I lost my mother to breast cancer the summer before my freshman year at Tufts and wanted an opportunity to bring awarness and support to a cause close to my heart. This idea was able to come to fruition last year as Tufts Athletics and SAAC were able to institute the first ever Play for Pink weekend for breast cancer awareness. All proceeds, donations, sales during games, and money raised from this campaign will go to LBBC-- an organization my mom loved and served on the board of directors for during her six-year battle with this terrible disease.
Together we can help support the fight against cancer and those going through this journey, and hopefully reach and exceed last year's total donation! Thank you for all your support, and GO JUMBOS!"
