Jersey Premier Soccer teamed up with the American Cancer Society to help raise money and awareness in the battle to beat breast cancer. October is designated as Breast Cancer Awareness month and the amount of pink you will see on your TV screens and sports fields will increase dramatically. Not only does this symbolize the togetherness of people showing the will to fight this disease it is also a sign to show that you have contributed to the battle.
As part of their ‘Making Strides Against Breast Cancer’ campaign JPS sold arm bands that all of our players were encouraged to purchase and wear through October. The net proceeds were donated directly to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer program in the name of Jersey Premier Soccer. The club, with fantastic help and support from partners Mainland United Soccer Association and Mainland High School, were able to raise $1,085.
Coach Leon Brown, the instigator of the program said, “We felt that it was important to show our support for our JPS friends and family who have suffered or a suffering from breast cancer”
