Keeping Up with Dr. Kaye

Homecoming Game: Why This Pink?

Tomorrow afternoon our Toledo Rockets face off against the Chippewas of Central Michigan in our annual homecoming game! Coach Matt Campbell and the Rockets look to win their fifth straight to improve their record to 5-1, and 3-0 in our Mid American Conference. The game is at 3:00pm and will naturally be at our Glass Bowl Stadium. Cheer on your Rockets to Homecoming Victory! I look forward to seeing you all there!

When you are at the game tomorrow you will undoubtedly notice all of the pink that the players and staff will be wearing. This is, of course, because October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer in women; more than 200,000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer last year alone. While it is estimated that 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer at some point in their lives the rise of support for research and finding a cure for breast cancer is at an all time high. I encourage you all to don some pink in support of all those who are affected by this disease.

See you at the game!

Go Rockets!
