El Paso Chihuahuas Stand Up To Cancer
The El Paso Chihuahuas are back home for seven more games as they occupy a three game lead over Las Vegas for first place in the Pacific Coast League's Pacific Southern Division. Ten days ago, they honored cancer survivors and took part in the Stand Up To Cancer campaign (SU2C). The organization, which was founded in 2008, has raised over $370 million for innovative research through collaborative efforts from scientists to provide clinical trials that helps fight cancer.
"We had a cancer survivors night to recognize those that have battled and beat cancer," Chihuahuas general manager Brad Taylor said. "Our promo team wanted a connective moment in the game and this was it. Anyone that wanted to stand up to cancer could do so by holding up their placard with the name of someone they wanted to honor. It was a powerful moment."
Sue Schwartz, Stand Up To Cancer Co-Founder was happy that the Chihuahuas embraced their message. "We are so grateful to the El Paso Chihuahuas for their dedication to Stand Up To Cancer," Schwartz said. "This is a cause that touches each one of us, and it is so moving to see so many people come together to share their connection to cancer and to unite in the fight against this disease."
