Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign 2021

Posted on November 15, 2021 BY Simon Boddison

Dynamo | Dash Youth Soccer Club wrapped up its 10th annual Breast Cancer Awareness campaign last week led by the Dash Academy, brought to you by Hunter Family Orthodontics and SPB Consulting. The campaign resulted in $10,000 donated to In The Pink of Health / Memorial Hermann Foundation as well as contributing financial support to the Dash Academy.

Over $80K has been donated to local charities since the inception of the program in 2012, with more than 10,000 pink shirts sold and worn in the local community. This year alone, the club sold over 1,500 shirts across their local communities for players, family members and supporters to proudly wear in the months of September and October. Shirts were prominent in training sessions throughout the week as well as on game days in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“The commitment of these young athletes towards helping those struggling with ovarian and breast cancer is truly amazing,” said In the Pink of Health co-chair Debra Cooper. “Statistics show that many of these young women will be faced with a loved one battling these diseases in their lifetime and it is so encouraging to witness their compassion and support at such a young age. We are all in this together and we are so grateful for this continued partnership with the Houston Dynamo | Dash Youth Soccer Club.”

"It is such an honor and a privilege to be a part of the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign with the Dynamo | Dash Youth Soccer Club,” said Dr. Ross Hunter of Hunter Family Orthodontics. “The players do a fantastic job of raising awareness throughout the month of October in our community. My mother is fortunately a breast cancer survivor, so it brings me great joy to see all the pink shirts being worn by the athletes, knowing that some of the proceeds go towards finding a cure!”

"On behalf of the club, I would like to personally thank Dr. Ross Hunter and SPB Consulting for their support for this year's Breast Cancer Awareness campaign," said Simon Boddison, DDY Director of Soccer Operations. "It's a program that continually grows each year and has become a very important part of our club, reinforcing our core value of service."
