The Cleveland Browns, in conjunction with the American Cancer Society and the National Football League are once again preparing to bring awareness to the community for the fight against breast cancer this
October for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. "A Crucial Catch", a campaign that has raised over $8 million since 2009 focuses on the importance of regular breast cancer screenings. The Browns are providing an opportunity for high schools to dedicate one home football game to help raise awareness for the campaign, which will be designated as "A Crucial Catch" Game Day. During this game, we encourage all players, coaches and fans to wear pink to show their support. For schools who participate by raising awareness and funds, recognition by the NFL and the American Cancer Society will be received, as well as a chance to win a memorable experience with the Browns during the month of October. Also, an October high school football game can be nominated for the Cleveland Browns High School Game of the Week presented by PNC Bank and the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM), which would result in financial donation to the winning team!
To participate, along with being nominated of the High School Game of the Week, we encourage you to sign up at cancer.org/acrucialcatch and download the 2016 A Crucial Catch Youth and High School Toolkit for more information on how you, your team, and your fans can participate.
The Browns salute those student-athletes who lead by example and give back to their community. Join us as we move forward in the community by giving back, click here to be part of First and Ten. Your commitment to joining "A Crucial Catch' would make a real impact in the lives of those touched by the disease. We need your support to continue the Society's mission to eliminate cancer as a major health problem. Participating in A Crucial Catch is not only fun, but it also teaches players and other students valuable charitable and character-building lessons as well.
