As part of the nationwide American Cancer Society Coaches Vs. Cancer event, men’s basketball fans are encouraged to wear pink to promote cancer awareness and participate in the “Creighton Vs. Cancer Pink Out” game when the Bluejays host the Bradley Braves on First National Bank Court at CenturyLink Center Omaha on Saturday, Feb. 2. Bluejay players will wear pink shooting shirts and pink jerseys for the game and, like last year’s event, fans have the opportunity to honor a friend or family member who has battled cancer or is currently battling cancer by purchasing the apparel via auction (the shooting shirt can be personalized – last name, nickname, etc.).
The first 14,000 fans entering the venue on February 2 will receive a complimentary pink t-shirt courtesy of Alegent Creighton Health and Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center. “Pink Out” t-shirts are also available for purchase at the following Lawlor’s Custom Sportswear locations: Westroads Mall, Oakview Mall and the Superstore located at 84th & J Streets.
Last year's Creighton vs. Cancer jersey auction raised more than $29,600.
