Akron Racers Game Worn Jerseys are for Sale

10/11/2017
It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Akron Racers are dedicated to the cause, not just in October, but all year.  General Manager, Joey Arrietta, takes a break in the action in the bottom of the 4th inning to start the "Bucket Brigade." The nightly campaign is designed to collect just one dollar at time toward the Akron General Muffins for Mammograms Program. This program has developed into a signature moment that has now become tradition at Firestone Stadium the past 17 years. The AGMC program provides funding for mammograms for uninsured men and women in our community.

The Akron Racers designate two games each summer to highlight their commitment to the community-wide breast cancer inititative. The "Pink in the Park Nights" encourages fans to wear pink to help support the fight against breast cancer. The Racers game-worn pink jerseys are auctioned at the end of the season with the proceeds, once again, going to the mammogram program.  The money collected is presented at the WQMX Bosom Buddies event held each year in October. The Akron Racers through their partneship with the Akron Racers Charities has raised over $150,000 toward the fight against breast cancer in our community . 
 
All proceeds benefit Cleveland Clinic - Akron General's Muffins for Mammograms Program.  Call (330) 376-8188 to order!  Christmas is just around the corner...
