Tulane Cancer Awareness

Student athletes and coaches from Archbishop Chapelle, Cabrini, Mount Carmel Academy, St. Mary’s Dominican, St. Scholastica Academy, Archbishop Shaw and Loyola University visited Tulane University’s Yulman Stadium recently to present a check for $38,505 – the cumulative proceeds of Pink Games fundraisers held last fall.
Pink Games are a series of benefit volleyball games and other student-led fundraising initiatives held to support the Cancer Center’s Patient Relief Fund – a resource for providing much-needed financial assistance for local patients facing a cancer diagnosis as well as financial burdens that could become barriers to their care.
David Mocklin, head athletic trainer at Tulane Institute of Sports Medicine as well as Mount Carmel Academy, founded the Pink Games effort at Tulane, and since 2013, funds raised exceed $155,000!
During the check presentation ceremony, the students were introduced to a breast cancer patient who has received a Patient Relief Fund grant. She was filled with emotion as she thanked the students and explained how their efforts have positively impacted her life.
