October is Play 4 the Cure Month
You make a difference when you "Play Pink" the month of October! October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Can you think of a better way to support a worthy cause, one that has touched us all through our many relationships, than by dedicating some fundraising effort during October - alongside and in conjunction with peak field hockey season in the US! Linking Prime Time field hockey season and the National Prime Time Spotlight on Breast Cancer Awareness - WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
In Coordination with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
The month of October is the official "Play 4 the Cure" month! Our ultimate goal is to get as many field hockey teams as possible to join the movement each October. Middle school, high school, collegiate, club teams - get on board!
Make A Difference! Play Pink! Play 4 the Cure!
If you are a hockey player, captain, coach, manager, parent, fan - we want your participation in PLAY 4 the Cure October! Breast cancer affects one out of every eight women in the United States. In 2007, almost 180,500 new cases of invasive breast cancer were diagnosed; and although that number has decreased from previous years, there are still more than 40,000 deaths annually from this disease. October is the height of the field hockey playing season in the United States! AND October is also the month when the National spotlight shines on breast cancer awareness. The merger of passion for our sport and a give back opportunity during our peak playing season - with this month long fundraising effort - make for the ultimate winning combination of athletics and humanitarianism. Get on "the stick" today! Start organizing your play pink day. And order your free P4tC kit from Longstreth for pink balls, pink wristbands, and ideas for fundraising for your Play Pink day!
