The 3rd Annual Give Cancer the Boot Campaign
What is it?
The Give Cancer the Boot campaign is a VYS Community Outreach fundraiser to raise awareness on the risks of breast cancer and the benefits of early detection.
How do I get involved?
Purchase a $10 Give Cancer the Boot t-shirt and wear it proudly at practices and games during the weekends of October 22-31.
During this two weekend event, VYS requests that all house and travel players Bring Pink to the Pitch and wear pink laces, pink socks, pink eye-black, pink ribbons, etc. to raise awareness on the risks of breast cancer and benefits of early detection!
Where does my $10 go?
All profits from the sale of the shirt go directly to Life with Cancer, a local organization that helps to enhance the quality of life for cancer patients through education and support. Over the last two years, VYS has donated over $1900 to Life with Cancer!
How do I order a shirt?
You can order online through the registration system
. In Step 2.2, Select Open Registration Season, from the drop-down menu, choose Give Cancer the Boot t-shirt.
When is the deadline to order a shirt?
Monday, September 29
Hurry, it's right around the corner!
Do t-shirts run big or small? Is there a size chart?
When will I receive my shirt?
Orders will be available for pickup at a central location (TBD) in mid-October. Shirts can be shipped first class for an additional fee.
I'm a Team Manager/Team Parent and want to order shirts for my entire team. How do I do that?
Fill out the team portion of the order form and send it along with one check made payable to VYS.
My daughter's team wants to wear pink ribbons and pink shoelaces also with their shirts. Where do I find these items?
Awesome! PJs Sports usually sells those items as well as other retailers (Michaels, Target, Walmart, etc).
What is the Team Spirit Contest?
Each year, the VYS Community Outreach Committee holds a Team Spirit Contest to recognize those teams that show their Give Cancer the Boot spirit! Teams showing off their Give Cancer the Boot spirit can send their photos to be featured in the website. Winning photos are inserted in the GCTB press release.
VYS and Life With Cancer thank you for supporting this outreach campaign.
