SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego Chargers will don pink equipment, use game balls with pink ribbon decals and pink kicking tees during today's game against the New Orleans Saints at Qualcomm Stadium in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
There will also be on-field pink ribbon stencils and "A Crucial Catch" wall banners will be displayed.
The Chargers will recognize 35 breast cancer survivors on the field during pregame activities.
Zeta Tau Alpha sorority members will pass out pink ribbons and education cards at the gates.
Susie Spanos, wife of Chargers president Dean Spanos, will recognize the La Maestra Community Health Centers for their assistance with the team's mammogram events and as the recipient of the NFL's $50,000 CHANGE Grant for the San Diego region.
The national anthem will be performed by Katriz Trinidad, a contestant on the fall 2014 season of the NBC singing competition "The Voice," while ZTA members will help present the flag and pink ribbon stencils.
