BC’s Uniforms To Benefit Wounded Warriors

Boston College will wear custom-made uniforms for Saturday's game against Maryland as part of Under Armour's UA Freedom initiative, developed to help raise awareness and support for our nation's military and public safety officials.

Each year, Under Armour creates specially designed unis in support of Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), a non-profit organization that provides programs and services for injured service members and their families.  

The University of Hawaii will also don the patriotic, freedom-inspired uniforms during their Nov. 24 match-up with UNLV. These games mark the fourth year Under Armour has created customized uniforms, including cleats, gloves and helmets to benefit WWP. To further honor all veterans, each team will replace the last names on the back of their jerseys with a core value declaration - Duty, Honor, Courage, Commitment, Integrity, Country, or Service. Team personnel will also pay tribute to the veterans with specially designed sideline gear that features the WWP patch.

Following the games, the jerseys will be auctioned off on the schools' websites with 100 percent of proceeds benefiting the Wounded Warriors Project.
