The Pink Zone

Over the last few weeks, you must have watched (or at least flipped through the channels and seen) the Women's College Basketball players smothered in pink uniforms, headbands, shoes, warm-ups, towels, etc. With the intention of raising money and awareness of the Kay Yow and JimmyV Foundations for Breast Cancer Research, thousands of schools and organizations across the country have been a part of "Pink Zone 2011". The Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) is working to raise awareness not just on the court, but also on campuses nationwide, to put an end to breast cancer and help find a cure to save millions of lives.

From Akiachak High School in Alaska to the Baylor University Bears, from the University of Michigan to NC State University (where Coach Kay Yow and Coach Jimmy Valvano called their home for many years). On February 17th, our very own Drexel Dragons Women's Basketball Team hosted William & Mary for their "Pink ZOne" event. At the basketball game that night, there was a performance by Eagles Cheerleaders alumni to help support "Team Ra-Ras Kicks Breast Cancer". Team Ra-Ras is an initiative to fight breast cancer. By watching their video (below), you can help their quest because for every view, United Healthcare of Pennsylvania has agreed to donate to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
