Peace basketball thinks pink

By on February 16, 2011 9:42 pm

RALEIGH, NC – Peace College will show its support of the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association’s (WBCA) "Pink Zone" this Saturday by wearing pink jerseys during its game against Ferrum College.

 

The “Pink Zone” program is a global, unified effort for the WBCA’s nation of coaches to assist in raising breast cancer awareness on the court, across campuses, in communities and beyond. The USA South’s participation in the "Pink Zone" initiative includes all ten women’s basketball teams, along with many of the men’s programs, and takes place February 11-20.

 

“By supporting this game we show a united effort in the fight against cancer as well as support of those who have fought or are fighting this horrible disease,” Peace coach Kelly Johnson said. “I would also like to thank the Peace College community as well as all the Peace College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee for all of their work to raise money for the battle against cancer”.

 

USA South institutions will choose multiple ways to participate in the initiative. Many teams will collect money through donations and merchandise sales to give to various organizations such as the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and other local organizations for breast cancer awareness and support.

 

Additionally, many teams will incorporate pink in their uniforms in the form of pink socks, pink shoelaces, pink warm-up shirts and custom-made pink jerseys.
