UMD Men and Women Take the Rink in Pink for Breast Cancer This Weekend
It will be “pink at the rink” at AMSOIL Arena on Saturday, January 12th, for University of Minnesota Duluth hockey.
The University of Minnesota Duluth men and women hockey teams will each hold their second annual Pink Game this Saturday. The women will host St. Cloud State University at 3:07 p.m. The men will host Michigan Tech University at 7:07 p.m. Both Bulldog teams will wear special-edition jerseys, which will be auctioned off with proceeds going to benefit the Essentia Health Foundation.
You can bid on the jerseys prior to Saturday afternoon HERE and need not be present to win. There will also be an on-site silent auction for the jerseys and a meet-and-greet with the Bulldogs after the game. In 2011-12, the Bulldog men and women helped raise nearly $25,000 in support of breast cancer.
A special pregame ceremony and in-game announcements will be made recognizing those who have survived, been affected by, or have known someone in the battle against breast cancer.
