Youth soccer teams mark breast cancer awareness day

By David Williams

Ramona Soccer League celebrated breast cancer awareness day on Saturday, Oct. 26, and players got into the spirit by accessorizing with pink in a variety of ways.

There were pink socks, pink jerseys, pink ribbons, pink hair, and even pink snow cones at the snack stand. Ramona Soccer League wanted to help celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month to bring attention to those affected by the disease and to support ongoing research to find a cure. The effort resulted in a fun and colorful day at the soccer fields.
