CLEVELAND – For the second-straight season, the Case Western Reserve University men's and women's tennis teams will don pink attire as part of a "Rally for the Cure" event that will be held this Saturday, April 20 at the Cleveland Skating Club. All proceeds from the event will go to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

"We hope that this event will give Case Western Reserve students as well as our faculty and staff the chance to support the Rally for the Cure initiative and Susan G. Komen for the Cure," said junior student-athlete and event organizer Derek Reinbold (Carmel, Ind./Park Tudor).

Saturday's matches versus Walsh University, the only home event of the spring, will also serve as Seniors' Day with four men and three women playing in the final home matches of their careers.

"The teams are excited to host the Rally for the Cure again this year, and we are hoping for a great turn out. We as a team will be wearing pink, and we highly encourage all in attendance to do the same."

About Rally for the Cure

Rally for the Cure is a grassroots program that works to spread awareness about breast cancer in support of Susan G. Komen through volunteer organized golf, tennis and social events. Rally was created to empower people to take action in the fight against breast cancer by educating women about the disease and reminding them to get their annual screening to ensure early detection.
