Project Pink

I got an email from my friends at Puma about photographing a Project Pink event with the Boston Breakers of the WPS. This was my second time working with Puma as I had earlier been embedded with them for the Volvo Ocean Race stopover in Boston. I was anxious to work with the good folks at Puma again and with a quick email exchange, fellow photographer Jeff Tamagini and I were packing our gear and headed for Harvard Stadium.

The Boston Breakers play in the Women's Professional Soccer League, which consists of 8 teams from across the US. The Breakers franchise is in their second year of the WPS, after having been affiliated with WUSA previously before it ceased operations.

In cooperation with Puma, the breakers hosted a Project Pink game to raise money for breast cancer awareness and research. The hometown Breakers sported Pink Puma jerseys for the game which were auctioned off as part of the fund raising activities; overall the event raised over $7,000 for the cause.
