DALLAS, Texas (November 28, 2016) – Solar Soccer Club and its family of more than 2,000 teammates officially raised more than $10,000 for contribution to the Texas Health Plano and Cancer Support Community during the month of October with their Pinktober campaign. The Soccer Club, with over 100 competitive teams in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex, completed its first annual campaign with a visit and presentation at Texas Health Plano Hospital in Plano, Texas.
Solar Soccer Club’s effort aimed to support Texas Health’s Cancer Support Community North Texas (CSCNT) because of their collaborative effort to provide expanded social and emotional support for patients and their loved ones on three Texas Health hospital campuses: Plano, Dallas, and Alliance.
“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, “The funds raised will provide support and services to women in need, from diagnosis through treatment, post-treatment, long-term survivorship and end-of-life, CSCNT offers individuals and families impacted by cancer psychological, emotional and social support in facing every step of their battle with cancer.”
As part of the 2016 campaign, Solar Soccer Club teammates across the organization traded their traditional uniform for a pink game jersey complete with the Ben Hogan Texas Health logo and pink ribbon, teammates from across the club wore them for every game and practice to show their support for the entire month of October. Solar Soccer Club partnered with The Soccer Corner to donate all the proceeds from the pink shirts for this campaign.
