UNBSJ Seawolves’ “Think Pink” weekend

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Here at UNBSJ, we want to show our support to those affected by breast cancer, and the UNBSJ Seawolves’ Think Pink weekend is the perfect event to do so. Catch some ACAA athletics, eat some sweet treats, and try your shot at the “Shoot for Tuition” contest from February 1 to 2!

The women’s basketball team will be playing at 2:00 pm on Saturday, and 12:00 pm on Sunday. (UNBSJ Seawolves/Facebook)

The weekend is packed full of events and you will not be disappointed. Here’s the lineup of games for you to watch your favourite Seawolves teams in action:

  • Saturday: the women’s basketball team takes on UKC at 2:00 pm, and the men’s basketball team follows, with a tip-off time of 4:00 pm.
  • Sunday: women’s basketball gets another shot at UKC, starting at 12:00 pm, again with the men’s basketball team to follow at 2:00 pm. Women’s volleyball will be taking the court to face Holland College at 4:30 pm.

In addition to the fierce athletics to keep you entertained, there are plenty of events planned to raise money for the St. Joseph’s Breast Health Trust. Last year, $1600 was raised and we are hoping to beat that amount this year!

You can do your part by contributing to the Bake Sale, 100 Square Board, Raffle Basket, and the Silent Auction. All funds raised during that weekend, in addition to the Fall Soccer portion, will be donated.

Sports fans, UNBSJ students, staff, alumni, parents, friends and family attending are encouraged to sport their best pink garments to show their support. Pompoms, headbands, face paint; go all out!

The more the merrier, so please, spread the word about this event. There is strength in numbers. Go Seawolves!
