Softball to Hold 5th Annual Cancer Awareness Day

DAHLONEGA, GA – The North Georgia softball team will host its fifth annual Cancer Awareness Day on Tuesday afternoon as the No. 1 team in the nation welcomes Columbus State to town for Peach Belt Conference doubleheader.

The Saints, ranked No. 1 in the country for the fifth straight week, will look to take a step closer to claiming their second straight Peach Belt Conference regular season title on Tuesday afternoon as the Cougars come to town for a pair of games set to start at 2:00 p.m. on the campus of North Georgia College & State University at Haines & Carolyn Hill Stadium.

North Georgia and Columbus State will take a few minutes before the first game to honor those who taught us to fight and recognize those who continue the fight against cancer. The softball program would also like to invite anyone currently fighting cancer to participate in a brief on-field ceremony between games.

2010 Cancer Awareness t-shirts will be available at the stadium for a $10.00 donation to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.  All proceeds will go to cancer research and finding a cure.

All Proceeds from Cancer Awareness Day 2009 will go to the Susan G. Komen For the Cure Foundation.
