LBSU Breast Cancer Awareness Recap

This year Long Beach State hosted our first ever Breast Cancer Awareness Day on Saturday, April 16, 2011 at the softball and baseball games. The event was a huge success as over 1,290 dollars were raised to help fight breast cancer.

The baseball game saw the Dirtbags host the University of California, Riverside. 138 raffle tickets were sold at the event for the opportunity to win one of four different packages.
The first package contained:
1 Autographed Dirtbag Jersey
1 Dirtbag Hat
1 Long Beach Beanie

The second package contained:
1 Autographed Black Dirtbag Jersey
1 Dirtbag Hat
1 Long Beach Beanie

The third and fourth packages contained:
1 Autographed Dirtbag T-shirt
1 Dirtbag Hat 1 Long Beach Beanie
1 Breast Cancer Awareness Baseball

Through the raffle tickets $690.00 dollars were raised.

The softball team hosted UC Davis. Carrie Lovelady threw out the first pitch, she is Christina Schallig's mom, and a proud two year breast cancer survivor. The team took the field wearing pink visors, shoe laces, and headbands as Erin Jones-Wesley threw a complete game, one-hit shutout for the first game. In the second game, Nalani St. Germain hit a walk off homer to complete the sweep of UC Davis with a 2-1 victory. Over $600.00 dollars were raised at the softball games through ticket sales and raffle tickets to benefit the Love/Avon Army of Women.

  1. Anything that may increase the chance of developing a disease is considered a risk factor. As research has indicated women with certain risk factors are more likely than others to develop breast cancer.
