The Stetson men's soccer team will team with Relay for Life to help benefit the American Cancer Society at this Friday's "Coaches vs. Cancer" game against North Florida.

With a goal of raising awareness of cancer, acknowledging survivors, and honoring those who lost their lives to cancer, 2012 marks the third annual Coaches vs. Cancer men's soccer games in the Atlantic Sun Conference.

Stetson and Relay For Life will be raising money for the American Cancer Society in a number of ways in the week leading up to Friday night's home game, which is being labeled a "purple game."  All fans are encouraged to wear purple in support of the American Cancer Society.

  • There will be a chance drawing for the framed and autographed Stetson jersey pictured. Tickets for the drawing are $5 for one, or $20 for five.
  • Relay for Life tie-dye t-shirts will be on sale for $5.
  • Purple cupcakes will also be sold at the game.
  • Donations will be accepted.
  • There will be a special ceremony at halftime.
  • All proceeds from the match will go to benefiting the American Cancer Society.

Fans looking to donate to the cause, or who are interested in the signed Stetson jersey, should contact Shelby Grimes at

The Hatters take on North Florida at 7:00 pm on Friday night.  Stetson will then host ETSU on Sunday at 1:00 pm for Senior Day.  The Atlantic Sun Conference schedule concludes with a road contest at Florida Gulf Coast on Wednesday, October 31 at 7:00 pm.
