This upcoming Saturday at Tiger Stadium, the university’s women’s soccer team will be hosting their first of many “Kickin’ for a Cure” soccer games. UWA will dress in pink for breast cancer awareness and take the field against Martin Methodist at 2 p.m. Fans are encouraged to support UWA by filling the stands with pink apparel.
Tori Brook is the founder of the “Kickin’ for a Cure” fundraiser.
“Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women today,” mentioned Brook “About 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer during her lifetime. We would like to draw attention to this serious issue and do our small part to help.”
The Lady Tigers have made an auction available for UWA students where jewelry, collegial wear, romantic dates and so much more are available to buy. Bidding will continue until April 5th, before the game. Ribbons can also be purchased the day of the event, where the prizes can be picked up during the game.
“Our goal is to raise as much money as possible for the breast cancer research foundation,” said Brook. “And we hope to get a lot of people to attend the game to support the cause!”
The Lady Tigers would like to stress that all proceeds will go towards the breast cancer research.
