East Lansing, Mich. - - Michigan State's volleyball game on Saturday, Oct. 5 vs. Northwestern will be the annual Children's Cancer Awareness game, a promotion which encourages fans to wear their pajamas to the game in support of children's cancer research, as well as local families who are fighting this disease.
All fans coming to Saturday's game (7 p.m. at Jenison Field House) are encouraged to wear their pajamas for this annual " p'Jammin" promotion. Both teams and the coaching staffs will wear gold ribbons in support of the cause. In addition, fans can bring donation of art supplies for the Michigan State Children's Clinic at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing. Donation boxes will be near the front entrances of Jenison.
Saturday's "Honorary First Serve" will come from several special people - children who are either currently fighting cancer and those who have in the past and are in remission. It is intended to celebrate their valiant battles and raise awareness in our community.
Saturday's game features the ninth-ranked Spartan volleyball team against the Wildcats. MSU is coming off a weekend where the Spartans won games at No. 1 Penn State and No. 13 Ohio State, ending the Buckeye's 13-game winning streak to start the season.
Tickets are still available for both Friday and Saturday's games through the Spartan Ticket Office either online at MSUSpartans.com or by calling 517-355-1610.
