Morgan Zimmer rocks the pink socks as GC women's soccer helped NFCR raise money to battle cancer.
Soccer - Mon, Aug. 26, 2013
For the second time, Georgetown College women's soccer is taking part of the National Foundation for Cancer Research's Play 4 the Cure, and this time around the Tiger men's team is also joining in to kick cancer. Proceeds from the doubleheader with Mid-South Conference foe Bluefield College will be donated to NFCR.
On Sept. 14 Georgetown will battle Bluefield. Women play at 1 with the men to follow at 3 pm at Toyota Stadium on iHigh.com Field.
"Cancer affects everyone in some way, whether personally or through a family member or friend," said GC women's coach Leah Crews Castleman. "It means something different, but equally important, to everyone, so we are excited to utilize our passion for soccer to support NFCR's pursuit of a cure and help save lives."
GC athletes will be wearing pink socks in support of the cause. Admission is $5, which will all go straight to NFCR. Donations are welcome and T-shirts will also be sold to raise additional funds.
