Community Service, pink Wristbands

Why are Hokies wearing pink wristbands on Saturday and how can I get one?

Hokie players and coaches will wear pink wristbands during the game against Central Michigan on Saturday. On Sunday, the team will auction off similar wristbands on All funds will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The online auction will begin at 10 a.m., Sunday, Oct. 10, and will continue through Monday, Oct. 18 at 5 p.m. Each individual player or coach’s wristband will not be auctioned, (you won’t be bidding on something sweaty) but rather the wristbands will be grouped by position or in the coaches category.

There will only be nine separate auction items:  quarterbacks, running backs, offensive linemen, tight ends/wide receivers, defensive linemen, linebackers, defensive backs, special teams and coaches.

In addition, a white Virginia Tech football helmet will be added to each of the nine auction items for the winning bid. Anyone wishing to bid on the wristbands can do so by logging onto

Let’s Go Pink Hokies!
