The UW-River Falls football and soccer teams raised a total of $1,504 in separate fundraisers during the month of October for the fight against cancer. The Falcon football team raised $480 for breast cancer awareness and prevention at its home game Oct. 13 against UW-Stevens Point while the soccer team raised $1,024 to fight endometrial cancer at its game Oct. 20 against UW-La Crosse.

The soccer team wore special jerseys for the game and auctioned them off afterward.
