BABSON PARK, Mass.—The Babson College men's and women's basketball teams will partner with the Go4theGoal Foundation in the fight against pediatric cancer by wearing gold shoelaces during their doubleheader inside Staake Gymnasium on Saturday afternoon.
The Beavers, who take on Springfield in a 1 p.m. women's game and face the nationally-ranked MIT men at 3 p.m., are taking part in the Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer program for the first time on Saturday. Since 2011, teams from across the country have been donning gold shoelaces to raise funds and awareness for children battling cancer.
In addition to the gold laces worn by the teams on the court, the men's and women's basketball programs will each be running a 50/50 raffle with the winners being announced during halftime of their respective games. 100 percent of all donations and $4 from every $5 pair of laces go back to helping kids and their families in their fight against cancer.
