Every year, the Colorado Mammoth do a “black out” night for cancer. All the proceeds go to cancer research. Last year, the Mammoth players auctioned off their game worn jerseys and helmets and donated all the money to support breast cancer research.
In the past week, the players have been going to different children’s oncology departments with gifts and encouragements.
Both of these photos are of Ilija Gajic (#9) a transition player who has done a tremendous job both on and off the field. [These photos were obtained from the CO Mammoth Facebook page, and were taken by fans, so the credit goes to them! Thank you!!!]
Out of all the sports players out there, Lacrosse players are the least paid, and almost all of them work a main job all across the country, they usually don’t even live in the states that they play for!!! I admire the fact that outside of their 9 to 5 jobs, they are also dedicated not only to play a sport that pays so little but also have time to fight for a good cause.
I’ll be wearing pearl tonight for all of those fighting lung cancer out there! I’m not only supporting lung cancer but also all other forms of this awful illness. I hope that we’ll be able to find a way to silence this silent killer!!
Q: What color will you be wearing tonight?!
