October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and many Sun Devils are doing their part to bring awareness to the disease that affects so many around the world.
Last week men’s basketball head coach Herb Sendek participated in the Fashionably Pink Celebrity Fashion Show in Scottsdale. The event benefitted Susan G. Komen for the Cure Phoenix, and helped raise funds for breast cancer research and treatment with the support of celebrities and the Phoenix community.
