WALTHAM, Mass. --Saturday will be "Play 4 the Cure" Day at Bentley University when the Falcon field hockey team takes on American International College. Game time is 1 pm.
Bentley is one of many field hockey programs across the country that is participating in the Play 4 the Cure campaign, which is aimed at raising awareness and money for breast cancer. October is the height of the field hockey playing season in the United States and it is also the month when the national spotlight shines on breast cancer awareness.
During the game, pink bracelets, t-shirts, baked goods and beverages will be sold. Postgame, fans will be able to buy the opportunity to take a penalty stroke against Bentley's goalkeepers.
Those interested can also make a tax-deductible contribution at the game, or checks, made payable to Bentley University Field Hockey, can be mailed to Jessica Spencer, Field Hockey Coach, Bentley University, 175 Forest Street, Waltham, Mass. 02452.
All proceeds will go to the Susan G. Koman for the Cure Foundation. More information about the foundation can be found atwww.play4thecure.com.
