Red, White, and Pink – Hoops for Hope Returns!
3rd Annual Hoops for Hope
The staff at Wolfpack Sports Marketing have been very busy the last few months with football ending and basketball beginning.
Hoops for Hope is a basketball game centered around hope. Hope for early detection, hope for increased survival, hope for a cure. Why? Because this year in America, more than 211,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 43,300 will die from the disease. One in seven women either has or will develop breast cancer in her lifetime – that woman could be your mother, sister, daughter, wife, dear friend, or Hall of Fame Coach. Chances are you know at least one person who has battled breast cancer.
A parade of survivors takes over the gym floor at half-time during the 2007 Hoops for Hope event last February.
Wolfpack Sports Marketing will host the Third annual Hoops for Hope event on Sunday, February 10, 2008. Hoops for Hope debuted two years ago on February 19th and due to its enormous success, has become an annual event. Hoops for Hope is a breast cancer awareness and fundraising event that takes place around a regularly scheduled women’s basketball game. The event is more than a fundraiser; last year, 60 women who have battled breast cancer were recognized at half-time and were welcomed with a standing ovation and roar of cheers. Anyone who has experienced breast cancer, either directly or indirectly was touched by this event. This year things will only get better! There will be more survivors, more fans and more sponsors – which translates to more energy and money to help eradicate this disease.
Join NC State Women’s Basketball Coach Kay Yow, her team, and the staff of Wolfpack Sports Marketing, as well as about 9000 fans, for this one of a kind fundraising event.
Please join us in making this a game to remember!
