Soccer Players Go Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness
Soccer players took to the field in hot pink to raise money for cancer research.
The South Carolina United FC donned pink jerseys for a good cause this October.
To support Breast Cancer Awareness Month, players and coaches wore pink jerseys to the Carolina Cup soccer tournament.
"The gesture of support for this great cause and the overwhelming support from the kids, parents and coaches helped to not only bring greater awareness to the fight against this disease but also to show financial support for the cause," a press release stated.
Through the sale of similar pink jerseys, SCUFC raised $3,600 for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Executive Director of Soccer Tripp Miller spoke to the need for athletes to step up when it comes to giving back.
“Soccer is more than a game – it is about learning life skills that will help make our kids successful as they grow up," Miller said. "One of those skills is supporting worthy causes like the fight against breast cancer and SCUFC is proud to join that fight.”
