SHU Sticking it to Cancer

The Sacred Heart University field hockey team has joined hands with the National Foundation for Cancer Research to participate in the 3rd annual Stick it to Cancer campaign, in which field hockey teams across the country are invited to participate by committing to donate proceeds from at least one game to NFCR.
Sacred Heart will be donating proceeds from its game against Quinnipiac University at 12 p.m. Sunday to NFCR.
“We are excited to participate in Stick it to Cancer this year and do our part to help NFCR fight cancer,” Lauren Burke, assistant field hockey coach for Sacred Heart said.
“Almost everyone has been affected by the disease in some way, whether directly or through a loved one, and we want to do whatever we can to support the pursuit of a cure.”
To raise funds, the team will be accepting general donations at the event as well as selling t-shirts to fans.
The players will be wearing pink laces and tape in support of the cause.
