Clemson, Swinney support breast cancer awareness

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says the third-ranked Tigers game against No. 8 Florida State on Oct. 19 will be designated a Breast Cancer Awareness game.

Swinney and his wife, Kathleen, were on hand Tuesday to announce the initiative. The Swinneys' All-In Foundation is also selling Awareness Tiger Paw pins this month with proceeds going to breast cancer research at Clemson and Anderson universities. Kathleen Swinney says funds would also help the St. Francis Hospital Mobile Mammography Unit which provides screening services throughout South Carolina's upstate region.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.
