Virginia Tech football to promote breast cancer awareness vs. Central Michigan
While there's sure to be a lot of maroon at Lane Stadium when the Hokies take on Central Michigan at noon Saturday (the Chippewas' colors are maroon and gold), don't be surprised by some pink either.
Coach Frank Beamer and the Virginia Tech football team announced this week players and coaches will wear pink wristbands in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness month. The pink wristbands will be auctioned off beginning at 10 a.m. Sunday at hokiesports.com/auction and all funds will go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The wristbands will be available by position group, rather than bidding on specific players. In addition, every winning bid will also get a white Virginia Tech football helmet. The auction is slated to end on Oct. 18.
