Throughout October Oxford United Women will support Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a worldwide annual campaign to help highlight the importance of breast awareness, education and research.
55,000 women will hear the words “It’s breast cancer” this year, so Oxford United Women are helping to raise awareness this month. Many of you may have noticed we have already changed the club crest on social media channels to pink for the duration of October.
United Women’s home fixture against Norwich City will also be a designated Breast Cancer Awareness match with plenty going on throughout the afternoon to help support life-changing research and care.
Women’s coach Kath Faulkner said:
“11,500 people a year will die from breast cancer, so we are doing what we can to help raise awareness and help contribute towards life-saving research and support. The game against Norwich will be a great occasion with bucket collections and a special pink edition of the matchday programme to help support Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it’s something we are passionate in getting behind.”
