Local Sports in Brief: NAZ Suns launch breast cancer awareness campaign
The Northern Arizona Suns recently announced a breast cancer awareness campaign where fans can submit names of loved ones and their stories for a chance to see them printed onto a Suns’ jersey. Players will wear those jerseys against the Iowa Wolves during their second annual Breast Cancer Awareness Night on Saturday, Nov. 11, at 7 p.m. The jerseys will be auctioned off immediately following the game with all proceeds benefitting breast care programs around the community. Fans can submit those names and stories online to www.nazsuns.com/breast-cancer-awareness-campaign through Friday, Sept. 29. Last season, Northern Arizona paired with the Yavapai Regional Medical Center, raising over $5,000 for the BreastCare Center at YRMC.
