West Coast Conference Teams To Host PINK Matches in October
Sept. 26, 2012
SAN BRUNO, Calif. --- Throughout the entire month of October, "Breast Cancer Awareness Month," all nine West Coast Conference institutions will be hosting PINK matches in the sports of women's volleyball, women's soccer and men's soccer to help increase cancer awareness and give students and fans the opportunity to become more involved in the fight against the disease.
Each school will host unique events and activities on campus to give back to the cause. In support of their efforts, the Conference has provided co-branded PINK giveaways, such as backpacks, headbands, and foam fingers, to be distributed to attendees of PINK games this October.
In addition, West Coast Conference women's volleyball teams will utilize their PINK games to benefit the Side-Out Foundation, a nonprofit organization established in 2004 to unite volleyball players and coaches around the common goal of promoting breast cancer awareness and finding a cure, and other local breast cancer research organizations in their communities.
The first WCC PINK event will be a women's volleyball match on Wednesday, October 3rd when San Diego hosts Saint Mary's at 6:00 PM (PT). That match will also be televised live on ESPNU.
