ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan volleyball team and the University of Michigan Women's Health Program have teamed up in an effort to raise awareness and funds to help fight the cause of breast cancer with a pair of promotions culminating Friday, Oct. 8, with the third-ever "pink" match versus Wisconsin at 7 p.m. in Cliff Keen Arena.
Advance tickets are recommended and available now at mgoblue.com/tickets.
U-M head coach Mark Rosen, assistant coach Amanda Ault and former U-M All-American Erin Moore (2000-03) kick off the week of awareness by serving as guest ice cream scoopers at Ben & Jerry's on State Street Wednesday, Oct. 6, from 6-8 p.m. Portions of the business that night will go toward the volleyball team's contribution to the U-M Women's Health Program.
For the pink match, Michigan will wear special pink jerseys that will be silent auctioned off throughout the match. In addition, pink t-shirts will be sold leading up to this match for $10 each to help raise additional funds and all fans wearing pink to the match will be entered into a drawing for raffle prizes.
The University of Michigan Women's Health Program is dedicated to the health and wellness of women by connecting women to the very best resources in health care, research and education. The Women's Health Program provides comprehensive services, compassionate providers, extensive outreach activities and a full-service Women's Health Resource Center to help women -- and, through them, their families -- become healthy and stay healthy at all stages of life.
