Captains…and Cancer Awareness
Tomorrow’s Shreveport Captains game is about more than who wins. It’s also a night of cancer awareness. Willis-Knighton and the Captains hope to increase awareness of head and neck cancer, which is directly attributed to the use of tobacco products — including smokeless tobacco. The event also honors the memory of Jason Bland, a certified athletic trainer with Willis-Knighton Sports Medicine and Airline High School, who died from head and neck cancer on June 7th, 2010. Fans who come out to the game are being asked to complete a free oral cancer screening…then they’ll be admitted to the game free! The screenings will be offered from 5:30 to 7:30 Friday night at Fair Grounds Field.
