Soccer Games to Raise Funds for Breast Cancer


September 2, 2014-- The Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (ACPHS) women’s and men's soccer teams will host the annual Panther Invitational on September 5, 2014. The first game will kick off at 3 pm when the ACPHS women host conference rivals The King’s College. The men’s team will play their counterparts from The King's College immediately following the women’s game at 5 pm. Both games will take place at the ACPHS Soccer Field.

The ACPHS Department of Athletics and the ACPHS chapter of Colleges Against Cancer (CAC) have joined forces this year and partnered with the American Cancer Society (ACS) to raise funds and awareness about Breast Cancer.

Fans who attend the Panther Invitational are encouraged to wear pink in support of the fight against breast cancer. Everyone that wears pink will be entered into a drawing to win great ACPHS and American Cancer Society gear. There will also be raffles and concessions for purchase with all funds being donated to the American Cancer Society.

ACS staff will be available at the games to assist participants with registering their Making Strides teams for the 5K walk on Sunday, October 19. The event begins with a kickoff ceremony at 10:45 am at the Washington Park Parade Grounds (corner of Willet Street and Hudson Avenue) followed by the 5K walk at noon.
