On June 8th, 2013, The Athletic Trainers Society of New Jersey held their 7th Annual SERVE FOR THE CURE Tennis Tournament to benefit the Susan G Komen Foundation which directly funds breast cancer research and patient care. The event was held at Princeton University turned out to be a huge success with 22 participants.
It was a fabulous and fun day, dazzled with pink whether it was the ribbons, balloons, or gift bags filled with goodies. Tons of raffle prizes, a silent auction, and a delicious luncheon added to the excitement. The top pledge fundraiser was Kelly Keifer who raised $450.00. The day ended with the crowning of the doubles tourney champions who were: Joanne McVey and Suzette Rubino. The participants were also able to hear from John Furtado, the President of ATSNJ who explained the role and impact of an athletic trainer and Connie a breast cancer survivor who told her story and shared information regarding prevention.
We would like to thank our top sponsors: Zag Sports, Relevent Sports, Jag PT, Thor Labs, ATSNJ, Movement Logic, Trenton Orthopedic Group, Raj Mehta Family, University Orthopaedic Associates, Advocacy Management Group and Marty Franks.
We still have to work out all the finances, but we believe close to $7000 will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the cure.
The women of ATSNJ thank you so much for your support and hope you can “SERVE FOR THE CURE”!!!
