BALTIMORE, Md. – The Goucher College women's basketball team and the Goucher community raised over $400 dollars for Breast Cancer Awareness. All proceeds will be donated to Red Devils.
At the basketball doubleheader against Drew University on Saturday, donations were collected, a select number of pink t-shirts were sold for $12 each and a 50-50 raffle was held. In addition, both the men's and women's basketball teams wore pink t-shirts for warmups. Paige Koerner, the Community Outreach Specialist for The Red Devils, also addressed the crowd at halftime.
The Red Devils, founded in 2002, is a breast cancer organization located in Towson. They have a partnership with 41 hospitals throughout the Baltimore and Washington D.C area all sharing the same mission to fund services that improve the quality of life for breast cancer patients and their families. These services include a variety of treatment support services at no charge to the patients living or being treated in Maryland. The Red Devils funds focus on helping families in three program areas which tend to be the most common barriers patients face. They help assist with treatment transportation, family support, and medical services and treatment-related therapies.
