NORFOLK, Va. -- This fall, the Lady Monarch women's soccer team supported the fight against breast cancer by raising $3,000 during October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, to donate to charity.

During each game in the month of October, the Lady Monarchs sold pink tie-dyed T-shirts in an effort to support further awareness and help contribute to the fight for a cure. Their efforts saw tremendous suport from fans as the Lady Monarchs sold over 200 shirts during just five games.

"The money is obviously nice, and certainly helpful," said head coach Joe Pereira, "but what is most important is the education. We are a great deal more aware of this ongoing struggle through our participation in this cause. I am very proud of the contributions the Lady Monarch fans, friends and family have made in our effort to educate and raise funds in the battle against breast cancer."

The donations for each shirt will be combined and contributed to the Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource Center in Columbia, Maryland as a part of the Kicks Against Breast Cancer national charity.

During the October home games, the Lady Monarchs also wore their own pink tie-dyed pre-game shirts in another effort to support the cause. The pre-game warm-ups and each shirt sold as a part of the fundraising effort were hand-made by one of the ODU players or coaches.

This spring, the Lady Monarchs will host their third annual Mother-Daughter clinic, also in support of breast cancer awareness as a part of the Kicks Against Breast Cancer national charity. All are welcomed to join in the family event, with 100% of proceeds donated to cancer research.
