SMASH Cup welcomes the Futboleros!
Is to bring breast health awareness to all who attend and to further the "Think Pink" movement in our community.
We're partnering with Nor-Cal Think Pink.
Nor-Cal Think Pink originated in 1997, with the hope of raising funds and support to spread the importance of breast cancer awareness. Early detection has a 98% cure rate, and it’s the goal that local events like this can increase knowledge and help save lives.
We’d love for you to join us this year and help the cause!
