It was a sea of pink October 10, 2012 at the CAL pool as the men’s swim team competed against the University of the Pacific in a special “Pink Out” swim meet, in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in support of the Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation.
During the meet, Arena presented a check in the amount of $20,000 to the Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation, to further the Foundation’s cutting-edge research and ultimate goal of eradicating breast cancer. The check presentation concludes the worldwide Swim Challenge that Arena launched this summer, when the brand pledged that it would donate funds to Edith Sanford, in honor of the first world record broken this year in an individual swimming race. The Swim Challenge aimed to raise awareness for both the Edith Sanford organization and the sport of swim, with the first world record broken on July 28, 2012 in the Women’s 400M Individual Medley.
On hand for the “Pink Out” and ceremonial check presentation were Travis Burke representing Arena, Helen Henkin Kluck, Manager of Corporate Partnerships for the Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation and Dave Durden, CAL Swimming & Diving Head Coach. (Photo credit: Michael Tao)
