West Florida and Union take part in breast cancer awareness walk
Gulf South Conference foes put rivalry aside and join forces to walk for a cure
PENSACOLA, Fla. – The University of West Florida and Union University volleyball teams took part in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Pensacola today to raise money for the American Cancer Society. While the teams will compete against each other later this afternoon, this morning they put volleyball aside and joined forces in an effort to bring awareness to breast cancer.
“Today was a great demonstration of two teams putting aside their competitiveness and coming together to fight for a great cause,” head coach Melissa Wolter said. “I personally would like to thank coach Moobery and the Union volleyball team for their efforts to make this happen today.”
The Argonauts will play host to the Pack it Pink breast cancer awareness match against Union this afternoon in the UWF Field House at 3 p.m. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and UWF is joining the effort to raise money for breast cancer research and awareness while also paying tribute to family members and friends who have been affected by the disease.
Donations will be accepted in lieu of tickets for the match, which will be preceded by a reception for cancer survivors at 1:30 p.m. and a UWF student tailgate at 2 p.m. The first 200 fans to arrive also receive a “Pack it Pink” T-shirt.
