WVU Women’s Soccer Team Hosts Events to Kick Breast Cancer

 

MORGANTOWN, W.Va.— West Virginia University’s women’s soccer team will kick breast cancer through two fund-raising events April 8-9.  All proceeds raised will go to the Betty Puskar Breast Care Center at WVU’s Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center.

The team will host the third annual Betty Puskar Breast Care Center Soccer Invitational at the soccer practice field (adjacent to the WVU tennis courts) and Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium on Saturday, April 8.  Eight teams will compete throughout the day to help raise awareness about breast cancer.

On Sunday, April 9, the team will participate in the “3’s a Team, the 4th’s a Mountaineer” fund-raiser in the Caperton Indoor Practice Facility next to Mountaineer Field.  The tournament is open to boys and girls in grades three through eight, and there is an open division for college-age and older groups.  Each team of three will be completed by a fourth from the WVU women’s soccer team.  Each team will be charged a $75 entry fee, which will be donated to the Breast Care Center.

“We encourage everyone to come out and support our top-ranked Mountaineers,” says Stacey Adams, assistant coach.  “Not only will they witness exciting soccer action, but they’ll be joining us in a worthy cause that personally effects all of us daily.”

The weekend events are free and open to the public.  Donations will be greatly appreciated.  Last year the WVU women’s soccer team raised more than $8,000 to help fight breast cancer.

All donations should be cash or check and made payable to the Betty Puskar Breast Care Center.  Donations can be mailed to WVU Women’s Soccer Office, PO Box 0877, Morgantown, WV 26507.  For more information about donations and soccer events, contact assistant coach Adams at 293-2300, ext. 5546.
