PSU Athletic Teams promote Breast Cancer Awareness

Panthers support “Stick it to Cancer” and “Dig Pink”

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Two Plymouth State University athletic teams are supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month with promotional events at upcoming home games.

            The Panther field hockey team will be hosting “Stick it to Cancer” this Saturday, Oct. 23, at Arold Field, and the Panther women’s volleyball team will be hosting “Dig Pink” next Tuesday, Oct. 26, in its final home match of the season at Foley Gymnasium.  Both events will also occur on Senior Day as PSU honors the seniors who are completing their athletic careers this fall.

            Plymouth State will be hosting Worcester State University for Saturday’s “Stick it to Cancer” field hockey game at 12 noon.  All funds raised at the game will be going to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, an organization supporting breast cancer research. 

            The Panthers will face defending Little East Conference champion University of Massachusetts Boston for next Tuesday evening’s 6:00 p.m. “Dig Pink” volleyball match.  All proceeds will benefit the Side-Out Foundation, which awards grants to medical research organizations and entities dedicated to providing compassionate support to breast cancer patients and their families.

            PSU encourages all fans to wear pink to both events.  The Panther Athletics department hopes the campus and local community can help make a difference in the lives of all breast cancer patients.
