So far during our 2012 campaign we have been able to riase $1,250.71 through silent auctions, donations and merchandise sales. From last April 2011 through Oct. 7, 2012 women's soccer was able to raise $8.396.11 for the American Cancer Society!
NOTE: During the fiscal year change from 2010-11, all online donations made before June 6, 2011 have already been registered in with the American Cancer Society. Thanks everyone for your generous support! Check back for more updates.
On March 12, 2011, Joan Leaverton, mother of rising senior Jen Leaverton, lost her battle with breast cancer. In her memory, the St. John's women's soccer team began a school-wide "Score For A Cure" campaign to raise money for breast cancer awareness and research and to aid in the fight against this widespread disease. This indefinite campaign partners the Red Storm women's soccer program with St. John's Student Life and the American Cancer Society.
Since April 2011, the women's soccer team has accepted donations, both online (link available soon) and in person to the Score For A Cure campaign. In addition to donations, the team will also be selling pink t-shirts and red silicone "Believe" bracelets, which will be available at select 2012 home men's and women's soccer games and through the women's soccer office.
The pink t-shirts read "Where there is hope, there can be faith, where there is faith, miracles can happen!"
The Red Storm informally kicked off its Score For A Cure campaign at St. John's sixth-annual Relay For Life, held at Carnesecca Arena on Friday, April 8, 2011. In one night, the team was able to raise $1,692 in t-shirt and bracelet sales, in addition to donations. On April 13, the seventh-annual Relay for Life, the team commemorated the first year of the Score For A Cure campaign by adding $632.
During the 2011 season, the women's soccer team wore pink shoelaces in their cleats. These laces are available through with a donation to the ACS.
In 2012, the Red Storm raised $1,250.71 from merchandise sales, donations and a silent auction held at the annual Score For A Cure game on Oct. 7, 2012 against Pittsburgh. Pink merchandise will continue to be sold throughout the end of the men's soccer home games, since the women's soccer home season has ended.
