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.
