Pink for a Cure

September 26, 2017 2 Comments

Every year over 200,000 women in America are diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  It is a disease that has effected so many lives of the people we love, our mothers, sisters, daughters, relatives, friends and goalkeepers.  Many people aren't aware but over 80% of the employees at West Coast are female and this issue has touched many of our lives.  

The Pink Breast Cancer Glove started several years ago when West Coast President Shawn Norris developed it as a gift for a family friend battling breast cancer.  Though she ultimately lost her battle to the disease, it was that friends courageous battle and love of life that gave gave the West Coast team inspiration to do more.  

Each year West Coast builds a new Pink for a Cure glove and donates proceeds to a different charity with a cause to help those impacted by Breast Cancer.  You can show your support by Donating to your local charity or cause that you see fit and wearing the Breast Cancer Glove.

I wish that your Spyder Jersey was made in Hot Pink. My daughter’s nick name in the goal is “The Spider.” She would love a hot pink jersey to go with the gloves I am planning on ordering for her.

Coming off of his 2nd MLS Cup win, Stefan Frei was ready for a change.  He had worn the same brand of gloves his entire career.  So why change?   Stefan tried our gloves in 1 training session, after just 1 training session his decision was made.
