LOOK: Miami University To Wear Special Helmets For Cancer Awareness Vs. Kent State

Miami University is taking a unique approach to using its football uniforms for cancer awareness here in October. The Oct. 13 Cancer Awareness Game against Kent State will have the RedHawks wearing helmets with different colored ribbons, each representing ways that player has been affected by cancer. 

So when you see all the different colors (red, orange, pink, green, purple, blue, yellow, white and black) of ribbons on the Miami field, know that each player made that decision to raise awareness for that cancer.
