San Marcos Academy’s (SMA’s) “pink out” fundraising effort yielded a check for $1, 250 which was donated to the Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC) Foundation.
SMA president John Garrison presented the check to CTMC Foundation Board President Scott Yarbrough last month.
“On behalf of the CTMC Foundation and the hospital community, we would like to extend our thanks to President Garrison and the San Marcos Academy family for their generous gift,” Yarbrough said.
“We would also like to extend our sincere thanks to the student athletes, coaches, trainers, managers and all students who worked so hard to make this event a tremendous success,” said Yarbrough. ” We want to commend them for their efforts, but also for the creative way in which they have helped to raise awareness of these valuable services available at CTMC.”
The SMA bears wore special pink game jerseys on the night of Sept. 17 with the aim of heightening community awareness of the breast cancer services at CTMC. The Bears won their game that night, 21-7.
The pink Wilson jerseys featured green and purple trim and the CTMC pattern printed on each shoulder. The jerseys were sold to players and fans after the game.
Said Garrison, “We feel privileged for the opportunity to partner with our long-time friends and supporters at Central Texas Medical Center in this special fundraising effort for the local community.”
A limited number of the pink jerseys is still available. For information on purchasing contact Ronald Oswalt, SMA’s special assistant for athletic development at (512) 753-8003.Email | Print
