In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, fourteen Total Futbol teams participated in purchasing special pink training tees. Proceeds from the sale of the shirts will be donated to the Susan G. Komen organization for breast cancer research. To date, over $1,100 has been raised in this effort. Players are wearing the tees to practices during the last two weeks of October to show their support of this great cause.
Advancing breast cancer research has been a priority for the Komen foundation since opening its doors in 1982. To date, Komen has invested more than $889 million in breast cancer research, and is the largest nonprofit funder of breast cancer research outside of the U.S. government, currently funding more than 400 research grants worldwide.
