RPI Charity Campaign

Sure RPI is our rival. In our minds they suck slightly less than SLU. No matter, we'd like to point out that their campaign to raise awareness about testicular cancer is coming to an end this weekend at their annual Big Red Freakout! which will be played against Brown this year.

Each player has had their head shaved after a home game this year, and the final three guys are going bald this weekend, including RPI senior Kirk MacDonald. Kirk, RPI's leading scorer last year was diagnosed with testicular cancer last April, and the Men's Hockey Team has been leading efforts for raising money for cancer research through the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Their goal this weekend is to raise a dollar for every person at the arena hoping to bring their total for the year to near $10,000.

While we suspect most Clarkson fans will be paying attention to the weekend at Cheel and won't have a chance to make it to Troy for this weekend's festivities, if you're interested in contributing to their efforts, there's more information here, or you can contact Kevin Beattie, RPI's sports information director, via phone at 518-276-2187 or e-mail.

Nice post Ron. Two things we can all get behind: cancer research and shaved heads.
