Clemson Athletics Supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Clemson Athletics and Dabo’s All-In Team Foundation are teaming with Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital System, Coca-Cola, Southern Fried Cotton, Tigertown Graphics, Tiger Sports Shop  and OOBE in support of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease and support of programs seeking a cure.

Additionally, for the first time, the week leading up to the NC State game supporters can text “Dabo” to 41444 to donate to the All-In Team Foundation.

Throughout October, Clemson and the All-In Team Foundation efforts will feature:

  • A custom-designed 2016 Tiger Breast Cancer Awareness Pin available at Clemson’s online store – shop.clemsontigers.com and other retail outlets.

  • Special Clemson Women’s Pink Pullover designed and manufactured by OOBE available at the Tiger Sports Shop, in-store and on-line.

  • A special-designed “Howlin for a Cure” t-shirt offered by Southern Fried Cotton locations in-store and on-line. In addition, a special-designed “Fight Like a Tiger” offered by Tigertown Graphics available in-store and on-line. Proceeds go directly to funding the St. Francis Mobile Mammography van providing free mammograms and ultrasounds to deserving patients in the Upstate.

  • Clemson will wear special pink Nike gear during the Oct. 15 game against NC State.

  • Kathleen Swinney along with Coach Swinney will host the Tiger Call in Show On Monday, October 10th at 8 p.m.

  • For the week leading up to the NC State game, supporters can text the word Dabo to 41444 to donate to the All-In Team Foundation.

The custom-designed Tiger Breast Cancer Awareness Pins are available in-store or online through the following outlets: Clemson Tigers.com, Tiger Sports Shop, Tigertown Graphics, Barnes & Noble, Memorial Stadium Novelty Stands, The Athletic Department, Judge Kellers, and Palmetto Moon.

Proceeds from the sale of breast cancer awareness items during the month of October benefit Dabo’s All-In Team Foundation. The Foundation raises funds for breast cancer prevention and research with an emphasis on local university research programs and efforts providing medical screening/testing to local upstate residents.

The Swinney extended family has experienced first-hand the battle with breast cancer. Kathleen Swinney has led the effort sending a message to women about the importance of early breast cancer screening and fundraising to provide early screenings to women facing inadequate access to medical treatment in the Upstate. 

“We want to thank Clemson University, Coca Cola, OOBE, St. Francis, Tiger Sport Shop, Tigertown Graphics, Southern Fried Cotton and all the other retailers for allowing us to partner together on such an important cause,” Dabo Swinney said.  “I hope all Tiger Fans join in and support us as we try to beat this disease which has not only affected our family but so many Tiger families.”
