Women's Basketball to support breast cancer this week

Oct. 11, 2006

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The JU women's basketball team will take an active stance in the fight against breast cancer by selling yogurt for donations in the "Lick a Lid" event on Thursday and Friday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at the JU cafeteria. This will mark the third consecutive year in which the women's basketball program has participated in the event.

"We are proud to sponsor of this event because it's a very good cause," said JU women's basketball head coach Jill Dunn. "There are a lot of people who are battling this particular type of cancer and we have a responsibility to try and help out in any way that we can."

For a dollar, participants can purchase a single cup of Yoplait yogurt and lick the lid to support research for breast cancer. For each lid that is licked, the Susan G. Komen Foundation will match 10 cents for the same donation.
