October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. We have made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go and need your help! -http://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/breast-cancer-awareness-month
In an effort to raise awareness, help with the fight and show our support in the fight against breast cancer - which affects so many people either directly or indirectly – All Virginia Legacy players will be given a new Black/Pink warm-up shirt – to wear during team warm-ups at all games during the month of October. We want all kids to wear these shirts instead of the training shirts while warming up for league and tournament games during October. These are not for practices but to be worn before games please
We also encourage ALL LEGACY teams to do more. While we dont allow teams to change the uniform configurations with pink socks or other ideas – we don’t have an issue with pink wristbands, headbands, ribbons in hair or something else creative that doesn’t affect the uniform (jersey, shorts, socks) so that teams still look similar while at their games.
Thank you for your participation in helping VLSC support Breast Cancer Awareness Month – this October.
Shirts will begin to be distributed tonight and this weekend at games. If you would like to make arrangements to get your shirts at the office Thursday Sept 29 before 7pm or Friday Sept 30 from 9-4pm you may email firstname.lastname@example.org.
