As I mentioned at the end of my March 23rd article, our Bayer family and McCall Zerboni have not let a few miles (873 to be exact) get in the way of our relationship. We also won’t let that distance get in the way of teaming up to help others. Breast cancer awareness is very important to McCall, having lost a relative to this terrible disease. Our family has lost two friends, and we have another who has battled through it. Last fall, we participated in a local awareness festival to help raise funds. This year, we are again doing our part, but on a more widespread level.
We will be asking all WPS players to join us in “MZ & Emmers – Soccer Kicks Breast Cancer.” We will be auctioning (via Ebay) a unique item for the cause … sports bras, individually autographed by WPS players. All proceeds will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. At the end of June, all items will go up for bid for a week. Through social networking, we hope all those players participating can create a buzz with their friends and fans, perhaps even getting a little friendly competition going to see who can raise the most money for their item!
We’re very excited for this new part of our journey. For Aunt Steph, Kelly, Melissa, Vicki, and the millions of others who have been affected by breast cancer … stay tuned for more details on how you can join us.
