Beloit, WI -- The Buccaneer Winter sport teams will be “Playing for the Cure” as part of a Midwest Conference-wide, and nation-wide, fight against cancer.
In the Winter the MWC’s “Play for the Cure” initiative run from February 7-16, which encompasses contests for the sports of Swimming & Diving, Indoor Track & Field and Men’s and Women’s Basketball.
The Buccaneer Basketball squads will wear pink warm-ups in their home games against Lawrence University on Wednesday, February 12, in Flood Arena. The Men play at 5:30 p.m. that day followed by the Women.
The American Cancer Society is currently funding 11 research grants in the state of Wisconsin totaling just under $7,000,000.
The MWC will continue the initiative throughout the 2013-2014 athletic season, with the Spring initiative running from April 11-20.
