We've already seen how breast cancer touched the life of Jaguar's player, Reggie Nelson. However, the entire team has taken this cause to heart. Last year in October, the Jaguar's sold hats that featured the Jaguar's logo and the Pink Ribbon logo, in an effort to support breast cancer awareness.

The Jaguars are happy to report that the results of this campaign were:

Fans purchased over 1,300 hats, raised $15,192.32 plus the Weaver Family Foundation then matched this amount, to make a total donation of $30,384.64.

That's impressive! Delores Barr Weaver stated, “I dream of a world without cancer, and one day it will be so.”

Wayne and Delores Weaver presented a check for the raised funds to the Mayo Clinic. This will help support much needed research programs. This program will continue while supplies last and the Weaver Foundation will match all the funds. The Jaguars are really doing a great job in raising awareness about this potentially deadly disease. Support their efforts and visit the website at Jaguars.com or visit the Jagwear stores on game day. Go Jags!!!!!!!!!
