Drake's "Kick Cancer" Game A Rousing Success
DES MOINES, Iowa - The numbers are in and for the Drake women's soccer team it was another successful showcase as the Bulldogs' second-annual "Kick Cancer" game on Sept. 19 raised $1,831 for the John Stoddard Cancer Center.
In a collaborative effort between Drake and the Colorectal Surgery - Gastroenterology Department at The Iowa Clinic to create awareness about cancer research, the Bulldogs donated navy blue jerseys for the contest that were auctioned off during the game, with proceeds benefiting the John Stoddard Cancer Center.
The squad also sold memory cards that raised an additional $660 for cancer research.
"We are very appreciative of the support of the Colorectal Surgery - Gastroenterology Department at The Iowa Clinic partnering with us for this event and making it such a memorable night," Drake head women's soccer coach Lindsey Horner commented. "Our evening was truly a success in raising both funds and awareness of colorectal cancer."
The Bulldogs want to extend a huge thank you to The Iowa Clinic for its sponsorship of the event as well as their fans for generously giving to support cancer research.
