The Boston Breakers hosted their Project Pink game on July 24th and their fans came out in masses to support the team and the fight against breast cancer. The over 6,222 fans filled Harvard Stadium and watched as the Breakers switched out their typical game day kits to don the bright pink Project Pink kits in support of Project Pink and the Breaker's chosen charity, the local Boston chapter of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. The Breakers finished the game in a 2-2 draw against the Western New York Flash.
Fans participated in all of the pregame festivities and decked themselves out in pink to support the cause. After the game, the Breakers auctioned off their game jerseys to raise funds for the Boston chapter of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and raised more than $8,000.
PUMA clubs the Galway Rovers and the Monsters were on-site as well as the Uxbridge High School women's soccer team to take in all the action and have some fun. At half time, the Rover raced to "Score a Goal Against Cancer" and PUMA will be donating $100 in their name to the winning charity announced in October.
