All-star lineup for ‘Jocks vs. Docs’ in Admiral tomorrow morning

Just got this announcement, and we’re told everybody’s welcome, so if you’re looking for autographs or just to cheer the competitors on, be at Admiral Safeway 10 am-11 am tomorrow morning:

“Jocks vs. Docs” will kick off one of the state’s largest and most successful fundraisers for breast-cancer research. A team of professional and retired professional athletes will compete alongside some of the region’s best physicians in a grocery bagging contest for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Following the competition, there will be a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Safeway/SCCA mammography van [photo left], which has been equipped with new, leading-edge tomosynthesis equipment. This new equipment was funded by Safeway’s 2012 campaign, and the Safeway / SCCA MammoVan will be open for screenings at Safeway stores in Western Washington throughout October. (ADDED: Including drop-in appointments at this location on Tuesday)


· Kasey Keller, Seattle Sounders FC alumnus and broadcaster

    Great that they do this at a time when all the kids can go see their sports heroes.

    Anyone know what time?

    It’s in the first line – 10 to 11 am.

    Why isn’t this taking place before school so the kids can see the athletes? My 7 yr old son would have loved to have seen Golden Tate — and I’m sure working moms like me would have liked to had a chance to sign up for a screening before work.

    What are the times for the drop in mamograms?

      I’m sorry, they didn’t give us times – probably a call to the store would be the best thing.

Sorry, comment time is over.
