ATLANTA – The Georgia Tech women’s basketball team jump-started its “Save Lids to Save Lives” campaign last week by participating in the Atlanta Breast Cancer Two-Day Walk in Norcross, Ga. The entire team, accompanied by members of the Georgia Tech women’s basketball support staff, volunteered at the finish line, where they met people who had walked anywhere from 10 to 30 miles to raise money to fight breast cancer.
The Atlanta Breast Cancer Two-Day Walk is the first in a series of events for the Georgia Tech women’s basketball team to help raise the awareness of breast cancer. The team is currently raising funds to fight breast cancer through the Yoplait “Save Lids to Save Lives” program, and is in a friendly competition with the women’s basketball team at NC State to see who can collect more lids by November 15th. For every pink Yoplait yogurt lid fans bring to the Georgia Tech home football games, or mail in by Nov. 15, 2006, Yoplait and General Mills will donate 10 cents to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
“Everyone’s life has been touched directly or indirectly by breast cancer,” said Georgia Tech head coach MaChelle Joseph. “The Georgia Tech women’s basketball team is proud to join Yoplait in their drive to “Save Lids to Save Lives” campaign. We are asking everyone to help us collect pink Yoplait lids as part of our efforts to raise funds for breast cancer research.”
To help raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, fans may mail in their pink Yoplait yogurt lids to:
