This season, the Cougars will be working with the Vs. Cancer Foundation, non-profit organization dedicated to saving children’s lives by empowering athletes and communities to fund lifesaving childhood cancer efforts.
The Cougars worked with the director of the new foundation, Chase Jones, last season as a part of the nationwide Basebald for a Cure fundraiser where players raised $9,614 dollars and shaved their heads in solidarity with children who battle cancer.
“We are excited to take part in this community event again this year,” head coach Monte Lee said. “It is important for our guys to learn the importance of giving back to others, and this a great cause to work with.”
College of Charleston players and staff will be shaving their heads following the game against Radford on Sunday, April 28.
In the next four weeks, fans and friends can help support the cause by donating through the team’s Vs. Cancer page. The College of Charleston marketing staff will also be on hand throughout the upcoming home games to accept donations.
