Beloit, WI – The Beloit College Basketball women’s basketball team will be “Playing for the Cure” on Saturday Feb. 10th when they host Knox College in Flood Arena. The game begins at 3:00pm.

This is the eighth year the Midwest Conference is supporting this cancer initiative.  Play for the Cure aims to promote awareness for early detection of cancer and raise funds dedicated to cancer research and prevention.  The American Cancer Society is currently funding multiple research grants in the state of Wisconsin totaling millions of dollars.

The team will recognize junior Candace Cunningham’s mom, Christina Bertolini who is a breast cancer survivor. 

Play for the Cure wristbands will be sold at the entrance of Flood Arena, in addition to a special can with an opportunity to donate to the cause.
