Paint It Pink

The Florida State University Women’s athletics teams are once again joining forces with Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare for the sixth annual “Paint it Pink” campaign.  During the 2014-15 seasons, each of Florida State’s ten women’s sports will take part in a `Pink’ event of some kind.  Teams will don such items as pink shoe laces, swim caps, and jerseys during their respective `Pink’ games. Proceeds from each `Pink’ game will be donated to the Tallahassee Memorial Cancer Center.

Cancer has impacted all of our lives in some way; it is through efforts like the “Paint It Pink” Campaign that we move closer to a cure. The administration and staff of the Athletics Department along with our student-athletes are pleased to be able to help raise awareness of such a worthy cause. “At Tallahassee Memorial, we are committed to fighting cancer with early detection and the region’s best treatment options at our Cancer Center,” said Matt Sherer, Administrator of Oncology. “We are proud to partner with Florida State Athletics again to further raise awareness and funds for the fight against cancer through the “Paint it Pink” campaign.”

Fans will have the chance to contribute to the cause all season long through different fundraising opportunities at each `Pink’ game. The first five years of the campaign has resulted in over $58,707 raised for the cause. Online auctions will be held at Seminoles.com with `Pink’ themed memorabilia including game worn jerseys. Donations of any amount will be accepted at each `Pink’ event. Fans are encouraged to check Seminoles.com for updates on when each `Pink’ game will be held.
