Mustangs Host Fundraiser to Benefit Team Reason For Pancreatic Cancer Research
OWINGS MILLS, Md. - On Tuesday, October 23, the Stevenson men's soccer team takes on Maryland and Commonwealth Conference rival Hood College at 7:00 p.m., at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills. The team will also host a fundraiser to raise money for pancreatic cancer research to benefit Team Reason.
Team Reason was founded by the family and friends of the late WBAL AM radio talk show host Ron Smith who lost his battle against pancreatic cancer on December 19, 2011. By hosting special events as well as the sale of car magnets, bumper stickers, and shirts, Team Reason raises awareness of the disease as well as funds to benefit the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center's Pancreatic Cancer Research.
For a minimum donation of $5.00, spectators will receive a Team Reason t-shirt and wristband. There will also be a 50/50 raffle and all proceeds will benefit the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center's Pancreatic Cancer Research.
"Pancreatic cancer is the tenth leading cause of cancer in the United States and there are still many challenges to its diagnosis, prevention, and cure," said Stevenson head men's soccer coach John Plevyak. "I knew Ron Smith and his wife June personally and thought that this would be a wonderful way to honor his legacy and advance the cause of pancreatic cancer research."
