ADRIAN, Mich.--The Adrian College women's basketball program will be hosting its annual Pink Game on Wednesday, Feb. 8, against nationally-regarded Trine University. Tip-off is scheduled for 6 p.m. at the Merillat Sport & Fitness Center.
Their male counterparts will be playing MIAA foe Albion College later in the evening, starting at approximately 8 o'clock.
The Bulldogs will be supporting breast cancer awareness by donning pink T-shirts during warm-up and taking donations to aid in the research to find a cure for this disease.
The team will have hooded sweatshirts, quarter-zip crew necks, and T-shirts of various sizes available for sale to help raise funds on behalf of the fight against cancer. Silent auction items are also donated by local merchants.
According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, breast cancer is malignant (cancer) cells that form in the tissues of the breast and those damaged cells can invade surrounding tissue; one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime; breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women; breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women; each year it is estimated that over 220,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die; and although breast cancer in men is rare, an estimated 2,150 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 410 will die each year.
But, with early detection and treatment, most people continue a normal life.
Please join the Bulldogs for this special day honoring our family and friends, and help us in the fight through advocacy and awareness--all in the name for a cancer cure.
