UNM Men’s Basketball player Hugh Greenwood started this fundraiser to give back to the community he loves and to honor his mother who is battling secondary breast cancer.
“I’ve wanted to be able to give something back to the Albuquerque community because they have given me so much support throughout my career,” said Hugh Greenwood. “The Pink Pack was my way of giving back, and it has been a great success so far. To be able to bring more awareness and attention to breast cancer means a lot to me, this program and everyone who has been touched by this disease.”

The name Pink Pack has special meaning for Hugh. The pink ribbon has come to symbolize breast cancer. And “pack” implies a group of wolves. Wolves, called “lobos” in Spanish, are UNM’s mascot and are known for their close bonds and fierce support of each other. By joining the Pink Pack, you join a UNM family brought close by their desire to raise awareness of breast cancer, to support those fighting the disease and to find a cure.
Every dollar you donate to the Pink Pack goes directly to the UNM Cancer Center and supports research, patient care and public outreach — which includes screening for breast cancer.
