U SPORTS Shoot for the Cure back for 12th season

The U SPORTS Women's Basketball fundraising initiative to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) - and other related local and provincial charities - is up and running for a 12th straight year.

The Shoot for the Cure campaign has proven an overwhelming success since it was launched in the fall of 2007, with over $1.25 million in donations to date. The 2018-19 initiative is set to kick off Wednesday night, and all 47 U SPORTS women's basketball schools will once again participate in the program for the eighth year in a row.

"I am excited that every U SPORTS women's basketball team is poised to have a Shoot For The Cure event this season. There are many positive aspects of this national initiative but having 100% participation by all teams and their student athletes is always very special. I am really looking forward to hearing about many successful events from across the country," said Jeff Speedy - Shoot for the Cure Project Manager, Head Coach of the UNB Reds.
