WORCESTER, Mass.­ - On Saturday, Oct. 2, the Holy Cross field hockey program will host it's first-ever "Think Pink Day" at the Hart Turf Field during its Patriot League opener versus Bucknell at 12:00 p.m. The team will be donning special pink socks during the game for breast cancer awareness. Donations will also be accepted throughout the game for the Levine Cancer Center in Worcester, Mass.

"I am extremely thankful that we are able to host our first ever 'Think Pink Day,'" said head coach Zowie Tucker. "It is important to support and raise awareness to a disease that affects us all at some point in our lifetime and hopefully contribute to one day finding a cure. As women in athletics, we have a civil duty to promote good health and honor those women who have lost their battle. Even though this is just a small gesture, it is important we do our part in recognizing the strength and courage these women have faced and let them know they are not alone."

The event is a part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, happening all over the country. It will also be homecoming weekend on campus, as the field hockey team will hold an Alumnae Celebration to honor its past players after and during the game.

In addition, special edition pink "Sader Nation" t-shirts will be on sale by the press box at the game. All proceeds, along with any donations made, will be sent to the Levine Cancer Center.
