Cross-Town Rivals Partner to Kick Cancer

RALEIGH, N.C. - The Meredith College and William Peace University soccer teams partnered together to raise awareness for breast cancer during a USA South conference event hosted by the Pacers on Wednesday, October 24.

During the final regular season match of the season for both programs, players collected donations in support of breast cancer awareness and research. The Avenging Angels contributed their portion of the funds to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.

The attached picture highlights team captains from Meredith and William Peace. Both teams hold a pink soccer ball featuring names of breast cancer survivors and those who lost their lives to the disease. Each ball was used to kick off a half during the game.
