Athletica To Be Honorary Co-Chairs of Race For the Cure®

Saint Louis Athletica will serve as Honorary Co-Chairs of this year's Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, to be held on June 12, in downtown St. Louis. The annual race is held to benefit and raise awareness for breast cancer research.

Last season, Athletica sported specially designed pink and white kits for one home game to support the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Puma also designed a special pink soccer ball for the match. This year, the team will play two games dedicated breast cancer research and awareness, on May 16 against Sky Blue FC and on June 12 against Atlanta. Puma will once again provide a specially designed game ball for those matches. The first match will also serve as a registration drive for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
