The Connecticut Breast Health Initiative and New Britain Rock Cats held their annual “Pink in the Park Day” at the New Britain Stadium on Sunday, April 14, 2013. The Rock Cats hosted the Portland Sea Dogs (Boston Red Sox). This was a kick-off event for the RACE in the Park which will took place on Saturday, May 11th. The RACE supports CT BHI’s fight to beat breast cancer in Connecticut.
Fans were encouraged to wear pink and the Rock Cats players wore their customary pink game day jerseys.
This annual event to honor all breast cancer survivors and their families with the support of the Rock Cats organization is a moving experience. Pink shirts, pink hats and all things pink can be found both on and off the field. Click here to see all the pictures from the day.
The partnership between CT BHI and the Rock Cats is one that we hope will continue for many years to come in an effort to support breast cancer awareness and research.
