Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Soccer Kicks Cancer - Breast Cancer Awareness
Throughout the month of October, MLS matches will be played with commemorative pink goal nets and corner flags and pink sideline towels, courtesy of Gatorade. All 2015 adidas Official Match Balls will be pink throughout the month and bear a MLS WORKS Soccer Kicks Cancer pink ribbon sticker as well.
Although great strides have been made in the fight against Breast Cancer, there are numerous reasons to continue supporting research and raising awareness
- One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
- Each year it is estimated that over 220,000 women and 2,150 men in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die.
- It is estimated that 24,400 women and 210 men in Canada will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and that 5,000 women and 60 men will die from the disease.
