St. Catherine’s Academy (SCA), an all-boys Catholic School with a Military Tradition in Anaheim, CA, will be showing their support for breast cancer during the month of October. A special football game will take place on Thursday, October 26, 2017 from 3:30-5:00 pm at their Anaheim campus located at 215 N. Harbor Blvd. Anaheim, CA 92805. Football players will be wearing pink socks and breast cancer survivors will be honored with pink roses during the game. The event will kick off with a special prayer to honor all survivors and those who have tragically lost their lives to this devastating disease.
St. Catherine’s Academy’s junior varsity football team and their coaches will proudly wear pink socks during every game in October. Students and staff have been wearing pink wristbands to help raise awareness for breast cancer, one of this nation’s leading causes of death. Funds raised from the wristband sales will benefit the American Cancer Society.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the U.S and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women; it is estimated to take over 40,000 lives just this year. Statistics have shown that one in eight women are affected by breast cancer, and rates begin to increase in women after the age of 40. Globally, breast cancer now represents one in four of all cancers in women.
