BERKELEY - The University of California 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.
Cal will be donating proceeds from their game Oct. 12, 2012 versus University of the Pacific to NFCR.
To raise funds, the team will be selling T-shirts as well as collecting donations at the event and online.
The players will be wearing special T-shirts for the event in support of the cause as well as hanging displaying the names of those who have fought cancer on the fence surrounding the field. A moment of silence will be recognized in memory of those who have been lost to cancer.
The game begins at 7:00 p.m. and will be held on Maxwell Family Field.
