Women’s Hockey Players Raise Money for Breast Cancer Awareness

Jillian Dempsey and a handful of Crimson skaters will participate in the 2010 Chowder Cup (Gil Talbot).

For the third consecutive year, several current and former members of the Harvard women’s hockey team will raise money for breast cancer research by competing at the Chowder Cup Tournament at the Iorio Rink in Walpole, Mass., and the Foxboro Sports Center July 30-Aug. 1.

Caitlin Cahow ’07-08, will serve as team captain after assuming the role last year, and sophomores Jillian Dempsey and Josephine Pucci will join members of the incoming freshman class on Team Celine.

The team will wear pink uniforms during the tournament, donate time off the ice to take breast cancer research donations and hand out information on breast cancer awareness and research.
