Baseball, Softball To Host Cowboys For The Cure
Cowboys for the Cure is a service project completely run by volunteer student-athletes from the HSU baseball and softball teams.
The purpose of this project is to raise awareness and money to assist the Alliance of Women and Children of Abilene in providing breast cancer screenings.
This year the event will be held on the HSU campus intramural fields, and will consist of a two-day intramural softball tournament for students on Monday, Oct. 24 and Tuesday, Oct. 25 and concludes with the main event on Wednesday, Oct. 26.
The main event is a championship game played by the tournament winners and the HSU baseball team. Activities surrounding the game will include free food, donated and served by Pioneer Drive Baptist Church College Ministry, games, prizes, and a free concert by one of Abilene’s greatest local talents in the Kirk House Band.
All money raised during Cowboys for the Cure was donated by local Abilene businesses, and by the sales of event t-shirts and wrist bands. In 2010, the first year of Cowboys for the Cure was a tremendous success raising over $3,200. We are proud to assist the Alliance in fighting breast cancer as they aid less fortunate women in need of cancer screenings, and honored to give back to the community of Abilene.
