Shoot­ing for a cure

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

The UPEI Pan­thers are look­ing for a lit­tle help as the women do their part to raise funds for the Cana­dian Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion.

The Pan­thers Shoot for the Cure fundraiser goes Fri­day when UPEI hosts the Aca­dia Ax­e­women at 6 p.m.

Cap­tains Ta­mara Tomp­kins, Katie Donahoe and Anne Kiberd are lead­ing the Pan­thers ninth an­nual Shoot for the Cure.

“We’re so ex­cited to be host­ing this fundraiser as we all know some­one who has been af­fected by breast can­cer,” Tomp­kins said.

“On be­half of UPEI women’s bas­ket­ball, I in­vite ev­ery­one to come out to watch great bas­ket­ball ac­tion and help us with this wor­thy cause,” she added. “There are nu­mer­ous ways to give at the game. You can buy Shoot for the Cure T-shirts, pick up a treat at our bake sale or bid on some ter­rific do­nated prizes at our silent auc­tion.”

Shoot for the Cure is a fundrais­ing ini­tia­tive of the Cana­dian In­teruni­ver­sity Sport Women’s Bas­ket­ball Coaches As­so­ci­a­tion that raises money for the Cana­dian Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion and other re­lated char­i­ties.

The na­tional cam­paign, launched in 2007, has col­lected more than $886,000 in do­na­tions.
