Cybots support Breast Cancer month

 

It’s a disease which comes in many forms that has taken hundreds of lives in The Bahamas and around the world. As a result, thousands have joined hands to support and promote cancer awareness. Adding their names to the list of supporters, is the Electro Telecom Cybots Queens.

The pink team jerseys that will be worn during the 2010/2011 New Providence Women’s Basketball Association(NPWBA)season, is just a small gesture, said head coach Wayde Watson, who wife is a breast cancer survivor. He said:”The team thought it was a good idea to show support to all the cancer survivors. I know there were a lot of discussions within the community about Cancer Awareness so we wanted to support and seeing that we are playing in a ladies league, the jerseys was a good way of showing our love.”

According to Watson the Queens are also interested in giving back to the community. They, along with their brother team, the Electro Telecom Cybots participate in several community service activities. The teams also host a Primary Youth Developmental Program which once catered to only young boys. The program, which is in its eighth year is now open to female basketball players and will be held on Saturday, December 27, at the CI Gibson gymnasium. Some eight boys teams have confirmed their participation and five on the female’s side.

“The basketball tournament this weekend is one of the outreaach programs in the Cybots Basketball Club,”said Watson.”We try to keep 100 boys of the street for the entire day playing basketball
