In 2005, while still a student at TCU, I went to a football game against BYU with my grandparents. It was the first Frogs for the Cure event in which all TCU fans wore pink to the football game instead of purple in support of breast cancer survivors and in loving memory of those whose lives have been taken by this terrible disease.
At the time, I was very proud that my university took such a strong stand in support of breast cancer, and Susan G Komen. It became very real a couple of years later when my grandmother was diagnosed. Every time I think about TCU and everything they do to support the Horned Frog community, the city of Fort Worth and the nation, it brings tears to my eyes. TCU was supporting my family as well. Survivors are asked to come join others on the field every year at halftime in the shape of the pink ribbon.
That original event has turned into a major event that spans several sports and includes year-round activities.
Now, TCU is looking for your help to raise awareness. If the YouTube video reaches 100,000 views then the Frogs 4 the Cure will get to the Today Show to talk about how other universities can do the same.
We appreciate your help!
