PHILADELPHIA - For the third straight year, the University of Pennsylvania women's basketball team and its fans will raise money through the Charge for a Cure program. Money is raised with every charge the Quakers take during the 2012-13 season.

In the program's first two years, 109 gracious donors joined the cause and helped the Quakers raise nearly $7,000. Combined with other initiatives, including the Pink Zone game and the 'Pack the House' Challenge, the Quakers have raised more than $12,000 over the past two seasons.


Here is how it works: At the end of each month, the coaching staff will total the number of offensive charges the Quakers have taken as a team. Fans can pledge a donation per offensive charge, typically $1 per charge for the season. Money is collected at the end of the year, and dispersed to each foundation based on the money raised during the foundation's corresponding month.


Here is who benefits: The team will send a check to the respective organizations listed below.
November (4 games)
The Michael J. Fox Foundation (Parkinson’s Disease)
December (6 games) - Go4theGoal (Pediatric Cancer)
January (5 games) -
American Cancer Society
February (8 games) -
Dave Bryan Ride on Fund (ALS)
March (5 games) - Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of America


Here is how to join: Please join the women's basketball team as it looks to make a difference in the lives of the people that these diseases affect every day. To join the team in Charge for a Cure, contact assistant coach Kara Cassidy at karacass@upenn.edu.
