Sea Gull women’s soccer raises awareness for breast cancer

SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University women's soccer team is known to fight hard in every game it plays in, and will be sure to do so against conference opponent Frostburg State University on Saturday, but the Sea Gulls will also be taking on another challenge as they fight against breast cancer.

The women's soccer team will be holding their second annual Pink Day game on Saturday to bring awareness and support to breast cancer and the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

The team will be holding two raffles during Saturday's game for two different Salisbury gear-filled gift baskets. They will also be raffling off two hand-made blankets. All of the raffle winners will be announced at halftime.

At the entrance of the SU Soccer Complex, there will be a table where you can purchase pink balloons for $1. Those who purchase balloons will be encouraged to write the name of a loved one that has fought or is fighting breast cancer, and the balloons will then be placed around the stands. All proceeds for Pink Day will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

The SU women's soccer team will be sporting pink warm-up jerseys before the game and they ask that everyone attending Saturday's game try to wear pink as well. The match is set to begin at 3 p.m.
