ASU Soccer Hosts Pink Out on Friday Night
Sept. 22, 2008
TEMPE, Ariz. - This Friday marks the annual Arizona State University soccer Pink-Out game to spread breast cancer awareness, celebrate the brave survivors of the disease, advances in treatment, and reflect upon several years of progress worldwide in the search for a safe and effective cure for breast cancer. Fans wearing pink colored clothing will receive $3 admission to the game when the Sun Devils host UC Santa Barbara on Friday night at 7 p.m.
During halftime, the Guardians of the Ribbon, firefighters, police officers, and community leaders will be recognized for their help in raising awareness for the fight against breast cancer. In September 2007, the Guardians of the Ribbon began the 'Pink Ribbon Tour' which in 2008 includes 35 stops across the United States. The tour will not only bring those battling cancer together, but will provide an overwhelming feeling of support for those combating the disease. The tour concludes October 25 when the 'pink truck' returns back home to Phoenix. On October 25, 26, and 27 the Guardians of the Ribbon are asking public safety, local leaders, and citizens of the community to wear something pink to show support for those battling breast cancer. Along the journey to remission, the Guardians of the Ribbon have established support alliances with the Cancer Foundation and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. To show support for your local officials and the battle against breast cancer we are offering any local official in uniform $3 admission to the ASU Soccer game on September 26.
The Phoenix Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure will be collecting donations at the event. Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cure. Money raised for the foundation funds important research, education, and health services to those affected by breast cancer.
