This past week the Pioneers took a break from their preparation for the 2010-11 campaign to lend a hand and support the local community. The women's basketball team represented Sacred Heart athletics at the Sherwood Island Breast Cancer walk as well as volunteering at a soup kitchen in Bridgeport.
Sunday morning the entire Pioneer roster traveled to Westport, CT to help in the community-wide "Paint the Town Pink" campaign. Beginning at 11:00 am the team walked the 5K course as part of the Sherwood Island Breast Cancer Walk. The team raised over $1,000 in an effort to raise awareness during national breast cancer month, emphasizing the importance of screening and early detection.
