SPOTSWOOD, NJ - East Brunswick Spotswood Golden Bears Chargers (GBC) Football and Cheer teams will be hosting a Breast Cancer fundraiser at its home games on Oct. 6. GBC has teamed up with the Mama Mare Breast Cancer Foundation to raise money and awareness to help in the fight against the disease.

The games, held at Spotswood High School, begin at 9 a.m. with the Tiny Mites team and finish up with the Junior Pee Wee team kicking off at 1:30 p.m. GBC will be collecting donations at the gate while also donating proceeds from the day to the Mama Mare Breast Cancer Foundation. DJ Wacky Wayne from DJWW Enterprises will be providing entertainment throughout the day while the women from Straight Teasin’ Hair Salon in Spotswood will be doing pink hair chalk for all the kids in attendance.

There also will be face-painting and pink ribbon tattoos for all who want to participate. Krista Kasper, Chair of Mama Mare, will have a booth set up during the games to distribute information about the foundation as well as sell tickets to the Rutgers University Homecoming Game against Houston to be held on Oct. 26 at a reduced price with a portion of the proceeds going directly to Mama Mare.

Krista Kasper founded the Mama Mare Breast Cancer Foundation in February of 2010, just two months after the loss of her own mother, for whom the foundation is named. Since then, Mama Mare has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars that are spent to advance their mission to support and assist breast cancer patients and their families as well as fund important biomedical research in looking for a cure.  In addition, they have recently begun the Survivors Thrive Grant Program which has already given away more than $25,000 in grants to patients currently battling or who are within two years of their treatment.

This past March they held the third annual De-Feet Breast Cancer 5K Run/Walk in Belmar, which helped raise thousands of dollars, most of which is spent locally on families and research. For more information, visit their website
