SPECIAL HAPPENING


WAY TO GO SEATTLE SOUNDERS!
As part of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Seattle Sounders have launched a cancer awareness 2016 calendar featuring the Sounders FC players and breast cancer survivors. All proceeds from the calendars will go toward the American Cancer Society's "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Seattle." The calendars are currently on sale at the American Cancer Society's Discovery Shop in West Seattle. (4535 California Ave SW)
Did you know: 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and that breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women? With statistics like this you can see why this disease touches us all.

Thank you Seattle Sounders. Together we will fight and win!
