HELMETS REFLECT SATURDAY’S ‘I’M PLAYING FOR’ CAMPAIGN
‘Lacrosse Out Cancer’ Week culminates on Saturday night as the Colorado Mammoth hosts the arch-rival Calgary Roughnecks at 7pm MT on HealthONE Field at Pepsi Center. The jerseys of each player will feature the ribbon color that corresponds to the type of cancer that each has chosen to ‘play for’. So too will the players’ helmets.
“These are, quite possibly, the best, most unique uniforms I’ve ever seen in any sport,” said Mammoth president & general manager Steve Govett.
Helmet decals from Pro Athletics feature the ‘Lacrosse Out Cancer’ logo and corresponding ribbon color just above the players’ foreheads. A large ribbon also dons the back-left.
Side panels of the game shorts match the ribbon colors. The one-of-a-kind shorts will be auctioned off on the concourse on Saturday night outside section 142 through halftime, benefiting local non-profit, cancer-related organizations.
Tickets to the game are on sale now at the Pepsi Center Box Office, all Altitude Tickets outlets, online at AltitudeTickets.com, or by phone at 866.461.6556.
