Solar Soccer Club Launches “Pinktober” Breast Cancer Campaign with The Soccer Corner to Provide Mobile Breast Cancer Screenings for Texas Health’s Cancer Support Community North Texas (CSCNT) for Women in the Fight Against Breast Cancer
Oct 16, 2019
Leading the Movement are Solar Soccer Club Families and over 3,000 Solar Soccer Players
DALLAS, TEXAS, OCT. 16, 2019—Solar Soccer Club and The Soccer Corner have teamed up with Texas Health’s Cancer Support Community North Texas (CSCNT) to raise breast cancer awareness and help save lives.
Both Solar and The Soccer Corner are donating 100% of their proceeds from the purchase of pink jerseys in October to CSCNT’s mobile screening unit. CSCNT has created a free and robust program of support for patients, survivors and their loved ones who are dealing with breast cancer diagnoses and treatments. The unit travels to women in underprivileged communities to provide free breast cancer screenings. With this new campaign, the club has utilized the universal breast cancer awareness month of October to positively impact the community.
Solar has over 250 teams across North Texas and is rallying the local community by leveraging their far-reaching influence on the pitch and on social media. Bound by a cause, Solar teams are wearing pink jerseys in the month of October and hosted a joint event with CSCNT and their mobile screening device on Monday, October 14th at the Fields at Craig Ranch.
Solar Soccer Club chose to support CSCNT because of their extensive social and emotional care of breast cancer patients and their loved ones across the Metroplex.
“Solar Soccer Club believes in giving back to our community, as we understand this disease affects not only many of our players’ loved ones but millions of women across the country” said Cambria Reinsborough Solar Soccer Club VP, “This year funds will enable mobile breast cancer screening services to women in underprivileged communities with a fully functional, free mobile unit. CSCNT also offers individuals and their families psychological, emotional and social support for every step of their battle with cancer.”
