The College of Staten Island women’s soccer team wrapped up a super season in 2016, and most recently they gave back in earnest, partnering with Vitusa Products Incorporated to raise money for breast cancer awareness.

Not only did the team dedicate its game against Stockton University earlier in the season to breast cancer awareness, but their partnership with Vitusa and co-owner David Grande allowed them to raffle off a New York Red Bulls prize package for their recent matchup with the Philadelphia Union.  Funds generated from the ticket and meal raffle generated $760 for the Staten Island Breast Cancer Research Initiative.  

Grounded on the CSI campus, the SIBCRI is made up from a collection of CSI academia and students, the organization is charged with developing a epidemiological history of the disease, raising community awareness, and focusing on new and advanced ways of battling the epidemic through biological testing. 

CSI hopes to continue the tradition of breast cancer awareness in future seasons.  To find out more about the SIBCRI and to get involved, visit their website here.
