Shoot For The Cure scores big!

​The CIS Women’s Basketball Coaches Association recently announced that the organization had raised $98,706.92 across the country for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation in 2011-12 thanks to the fifth edition of its annual Shoot For The Cure initiative.

The initiative was launched in 2007-08 to raise awareness and money and in five years, CIS women’s basketball programs have collectively raised $512,394.58.

This season, for the first time, all 43 universities that field women’s basketball teams participated by holding one or numerous fundraising games or activities over the course of the campaign.

“In addition to doing our best to raise money and awareness to fight this terrible disease, we had two other goals in mind this year,” said Jeff Speedy, president of the WBCA, Shoot For The Cure project manager and head coach at UNB.

“We wanted to have all of our teams participate, and raise enough money to get us over the half a million mark for the five years of this initiative. I am thrilled that we have accomplished those two goals!  Our coaches, student athletes, athletic directors and sports information directors have really bought into Shoot For The Cure and are really making a positive difference in so many ways.”
