Sports Services would like to thank everyone for their contribution to the 2015 Think Pink campaign!
With the help of many contributors, we managed to raise a whopping 1604.83$ for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and an additional 1000.00$ for Breast Cancer Action Ottawa.
The campaign had 3 themed breast cancer varsity games: OUA Tackles Football on October 24th, Shoot for the Cure on November 7th, and Pink the Rink on November 15th. A portion of the ticket proceeds was donated to the organizations. Additional fundraising consisted of games, t-shirt sales, and bake sales.
We would like to say a special thank you to the Sports Marketing class that organized Pink the Rink and focused their donations on Breast Cancer Action Ottawa. ‘’Working with Sport Services in the organization of Pink the Rink was a great experience for everyone, as it allowed students to consider theoretical aspects of the Sport Marketing class in relation to the practical realities of staging an event. It also allowed them to work on community outreach and raise a significant amount of money for Breast Cancer Action Ottawa. Overall, the event was a resounding success’’, said Professor Stephen Stuart.
