LUBBOCK, Texas - The Texas Tech baseball program was among over 8,000 participants at the 2012 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Saturday morning at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.
In 40-degree temperature, thousands were involved with the 5K and 1K events while Red Raider student-athletes were lining the streets to encourage all participants and to help navigate the course.
"It means a lot to all of us to be able to come out and help support this great cause," junior right-handed pitcher Trey Masek said. "I know as a team, we feel fortunate that we are in the position to be able to come out and join forces with the Lubbock community and be involved today."
The event - now in its 18th year - serves as the primary fundraiser for breast cancer awareness and research. It is one of the several national events held by the Komen organization.
Joining the Red Raider baseball players were the men's and women's basketball student-athletes along with both the Red Raider and Lady Raider coaching staffs.
