CLEMSON, SC – The Clemson women’s basketball team will “Shoot for the Cure” on Wednesday, Feb. 13, as the Lady Tigers take on the Duke Blue Devils in a 7:00 p.m. contest at Littlejohn Coliseum in their effort to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.
In 2007, the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association began “Think Pink” as an initiative to raise breast cancer awareness in women’s basketball on campuses and in communities. In 2007, more than 120 schools unified in this effort and helped make the inaugural year of “Think Pink” a success.
Several opportunities are available for fans to be involved and donate to “Think Pink,” including:
– Pledging a dollar amount per Clemson free throw made by signing up at the Guest Services Counter in Littlejohn Coliseum (Clemson currently averages 10 made free throws game) – Signing up for a pledge with a Zeta Tau Alpha member – Making a flat donation that can be turned in to the Guest Services Counter – Pledges and donations can be made at any home basketball game through February 13
All breast cancer survivors, including their immediate families, will receive free admission to the game. Clemson Athletics will also recognize these breast cancer survivors during halftime of the contest. If you are a Breast Cancer survivor and would like to attend this game, please email mwelch@clemson so you can be properly recognized.
The Lady Tigers will donate a matching gift for each contribution, up to $5,000. All money raised will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation with an official presentation to be held during Clemson’s game against NC State on Feb. 28.
