Rockets Raised More than $19,800 for Susan G. Komen For the Cure of Northwest Ohio

Posted: Updated:

The University of Toledo women's basketball team made another record-setting contribution to Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Northwest Ohio at its sixth-annual "Rockets For the Cure" game last Saturday. The Rockets raised $19,845 for breast cancer research, surpassing last year's then-record total of $18,010.

The pink Nike jerseys that UT wore were made specially for the game. Six of the uniforms that were auctioned off after the contest went for more than $1,000, including a high of $2,000 for senior Naama Shafir. Most in the crowd wore pink, including many who donned "Rockets for the Cause" t-shirts.
