An Unbelievable Breast Cancer Awareness Game

Concordia will host their annual breast cancer awareness and fund raising game on Saturday, Apr 28 when they host Macalester at 1 p.m. This year’s game will feature many promotions, games and giveaways including an unbelievable prize package for four Delta Sky Box/Legend Club tickets (right behind home plate) to the Twins game against the Chicago Cubs on June 10 as well as an autographed baseball from Joe Mauer.

During the games there will be a barbecue, a ball toss, t-shirts for purchase, as well as the construction of the first-ever “Strike Out Cancer” Tribute Wall. Cancer Ribbons will be available to write the name of a survivor, those lost, a loved one battling cancer, or just a message or hope in the fight to beat cancer. The ribbons will be available in a variety of colors to denote many different types of cancer. While the team is choosing to honor breast cancer specifically, we would like to honor those affected by any type of cancer through the “Strike-Out Cancer” Tribute Wall.

If fans are unable to make it to the game but would still like to participate in the construction of the Tribute Wall, please email Cobber head coach Megan Johnson (mjohnson@cord.edu) with the ribbon color (cancer type) and message you would like to include.  The team would be happy to place the ribbon on our wall in honor of you!
All proceeds from the food, ball toss, t-shirts and donations will be donated to help in the fight to cure Breast Cancer!

In addition to the Breast Cancer Awareness Game we are also hosting a separate event on Saturday!  On May 14-26, the Concordia softball team will be traveling to do mission work and play softball in South Africa. To aid in the expenses of this goodwill trip, the team will be holding a Silent Auction and fans can bid on the items at the game on Saturday.

Some of the prize packages include:
- 4 -Delta Sky Box/Legends Club Tickets:
- June 10 vs. Chicago Cubs (seats are behind home plate)
- Donated from the Northmarq (Pohlad Family Foundation)
