BCC Boys Soccer fundraiser raised over $1,075 and continues all month long

The B-CC Boy's Soccer Team is taking part in Breast Cancer Awareness Month by raising money for the Nina Hyde Center for Breast Cancer Research at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The Nina Hyde Center represents a long-standing, concerted, multidisciplinary strategy between Georgetown Lombardi’s basic scientists, population researchers, and clinicians. More than 50 Georgetown Lombardi scientists and physicians study breast cancer, striving to uncover the biological basis of the many faces of breast cancer, and to work towards its prevention and cure, particularly in the Washington, DC-Baltimore, MD area.

Breast cancer is one of the top two causes of cancer mortality in women, and the Washington, DC, area suffers the highest incidence of breast cancer nationwide. As the only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated comprehensive cancer center in the metro area, Georgetown Lombardi works to address these problems locally and nationally through the Nina Hyde Center.
