BERKELEY - In partnership with the NFCA and the American Cancer Society, the California softball team is set to host its inaugural StrikeOut Cancer game on May 11 against Arizona State.
At that game, the Golden Bears will don pink hair ribbons and encourage all fans to wear pink. Those fans who do wear pink will receive giveaways such as Silly Bandz and foam sticks.
In addition to collecting general fan donations, Cal softball will be selling pink hair ribbons as a fundraiser for the ACS.
Fannie Wallace - two-time cancer survivor and grandmother to current Golden Bear Jordan Wallace - will throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
Since starting the StrikeOut Cancer initiative more than 10 years ago, the NFCA has raised thousands of dollars to support the fight against cancer.
