Clemson Ladies Clinic Lights Up Scoreboard!

July 28, 2010

CLEMSON, SC – Dabo Swinney, Clemson University head football coach, conducted his second Ladies Football Clinic at Littlejohn Coliseum in Clemson on Saturday. There were close to 900 attendees. Ladies received instruction from the Clemson coaching staff and a behind the scene look into Tiger football.

A third of each $60 registration fee paid was designated for breast cancer research, and a dollar-for-dollar match from Dabo’s All-In Team Foundation doubled the amount. Partnering with Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Anderson’s AnMed Health, the clinic raised $23,000.

“We were honored to be a part of Dabo and Kathleen Swinney’s ladies clinic Saturday. Because of their generosity, many local women will be helped through our grant programs.” Krista Bannister, executive director, SC Mountains to Midlands Affiliate of Susan G Komen for the Cure.

Lauren Barnett, AnMed Community Relations Coordinator said, “The Ladies Clinic provides AnMed Health the opportunity to interact with hundreds of women about the importance of breast cancer screening and prevention. Last year, thanks to the All In Foundation’s support, we saw remarkable growth in our genetic counseling program, which allows residents to meet for free with an expert to learn more about their cancer risk. We are very grateful for the dedication that Dabo and Kathleen have shown to breast health and we were thrilled to participate again this year.”
