HANOVER, N.H. – The Dartmouth field hockey team will be hosting its annual Breast Cancer Awareness/PINK game on Sunday, Oct. 27 when it hosts Columbia in a crucial Ivy League contest at noon.

Fans are encouraged to wear pink in support of awareness as the Big Green will also don the color in its uniform during the game.

The Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center will provide brochures and information on how fans can get involved in the fight against the disease.

For every Dartmouth goal scored on Sunday afternoon, t-shirts will be thrown into the crowd in appreciation of their support.

"It is an honor and privilege to be hosting a PINK game again for 2013,” head coach Amy Fowler said. “Earlier this fall our Dartmouth Field Hockey family lost a member, Mary Meyer, mother of Liz Blanken '13, to a long battle with breast cancer. So many people are affected every day by this horrible disease, so we are hoping to help promote awareness, early detection and support for the people who help make miracles happen at the NCCC. Please join us by wearing PINK to Sunday's game."

Admission to Sunday’s game at Chase AstroTurf Field is free for all fans.
