The Lady Lions Recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month
The Women's Soccer Team at The King's College is wrapping up a tee shirt sale in which they hope to accomplish two objectives. For one, they want to promote school spirit by offering the tee shirts which have a King's Athletics design to all students, faculty, fellow athletes, friends and relatives. They also wanted to support a charitable cause. The tee shirt is offered in several different color combinations. One of these color combinations has the design in pink, it comes on either a gray or navy blue shirt. A portion of the proceeds from this sale will be donated to breast cancer research.
Coach Bryan Finley said, "So many of us have had friends and family affected by cancer. With October being breast cancer awareness month, as well as being such a big month in the schedule of a soccer team, the girls thought it would be a great idea to try to promote school spirit while also raising money for such a worthy cause. We're hoping it is a success, so we can do something similar every October."
Senior Captain Amanda Sanderson (Houston, TX) added, "My aunt just received treatment for breast cancer and is doing really well. This fundraiser is great because not only will it directly help in saving the lives of those with breast cancer, but it will also help their loved ones. It gives them hope, and that's a powerful thing."
