Clemson supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Clemson Athletics and Dabo’s All In Team Foundation is teaming with Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital System, Coca-Cola, Southern Fried Cotton, Tigertown Graphics, Tiger Sports Shop, and OOBE in support of October’s 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.
Beginning today and continuing throughout October, Breast Cancer Awareness will feature:
A custom designed 2016 “Tiger Breast Cancer Awareness Pin” worn by players and coaches during Tiger Walk and by the coaches on the sideline during games.
Special Clemson Women’s Pink Pullover designed and manufactured by OOBE available at the Tiger Sports Shop, Clemson, S.C. in-store and on-line.
A special designed “Howlin for a Cure” t-shirt offered by Southern Fried Cotton locations in-store and on-line. In addition, a special designed “Fight Like a Tiger” offered by Tigertown Graphics available in-store and on-line. Proceeds go directly to funding the St. Francis Mobile Mammography van providing free mammograms and ultra sounds to those deserving patients in the Upstate.
Clemson versus N.C. State October 15th will feature special Nike gear worn by the players.
Kathleen Swinney along with Coach Swinney will host the Tiger Call in Show On Monday, October 10th at 8 p.m.
The custom designed “Tiger Breast Cancer Awareness Pin” worn by players and coaches will be available in-store or on-line through the following outlets; Clemson Tigers.Com; in Clemson, S.C. at Tiger Sports Shop, Tigertown Graphics, Barnes & Noble, Memorial Stadium Novelty Stands, The Athletic Department, Judge Kellers, and Palmetto Moon, throughout South Carolina.
Proceeds from the sale of the breast cancer awareness month items during the month of October will benefit Dabo’s All In Team Foundation. The Foundation raises funds for breast cancer prevention and research with an emphasis on local university research programs, and efforts providing medical screening/testing to local upstate residents.
The Swinney extended family has experienced first-hand the battle with breast cancer. Kathleen Swinney has led the effort sending a message to women about the importance of early breast cancer screening and fundraising to provide early screenings to women facing inadequate access to medical treatment in the Upstate
Coach Swinney,” We want to thank Clemson University, Coca-Cola, OOBE, St. Francis, Tiger Sport Shop, Tigertown Graphics, Southern Fried Cotton and all the other retailers for allowing us to partner together on such an important cause. I hope all Tiger Fans join in and support us as we try to beat this disease which has not only affected our family but so many Tiger families.”
