In Dabo Swinney’s weekly press conference this morning, the Clemson coach and his wife Kathleen were pleased to announce two new T-shirts that Tiger fans can buy to help support breast cancer research. The fundraiser is being spearheaded by the couple’s charity organization, Dabo’s All in Team Foundation.
“Dabo and I are so proud our foundation is partnering with Clemson Athletics, Oobe, St. Francis, Coke, Tiger Sports Shops and Tiger Town Graphics to help make a difference for those suffering with breast cancer,” Kathleen said.
Kathleen revealed two designs, one in orange with a Tiger Paw graphic and the words, “I am Death Valley,” and the other, a whimsical pink and white “Fighting for a Cure” tee. The Death Valley shirt sells for $16.95 (half of the proceeds go to the All In foundation, while the pink Fighting T-shirt sells for $20.95, with $10 from every shirt going to the nonprofit.)
For the Swinneys, the fight against breast cancer is a personal one. Kathleen lost her sister to the disease. “Breast cancer doesn’t just affect one person,” Kathleen said. “It affects the whole family.”
Saturday’s game against N.C. State is the team’s annual Breast Cancer Awareness Game in addition to homecoming.
