MVC Recap: Breast Cancer Awareness Game

View images of the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders from the October 12 game vs. Detroit.

October is a special month to spread awareness, support the fighters, and celebrate the survivors of breast cancer. This past Sunday was our Breast Cancer Awareness game. I look forward to this game every year for so many reasons.

With 1 in 8 women diagnosed with Breast Cancer in their lifetime, it's a cause that hits close to home for the majority of us. That was made pretty clear by the overwhelming amount of pink at the U of MN stadium on Sunday. The MVC were proud to show our support on the field with our pink poms and boots. We also added a pop of pink to our "Grease" themed costumes during our third quarter performance!

It was so touching to get the opportunity to meet survivors and fighters and hear their stories. While tailgating, we met a group of women handing out pink ribbons to the crowds of fans. It was amazing to see how many people throughout the day we saw wearing ribbons and what an influence these groups of women had on the day.  It was a great reminder of the huge impact this disease has on all of us and the importance of finding a cure.

It was such a fun day and a huge success in raising awareness!

Skol Vikes and wear PINK!
