Breast cancer is one of the leading killers of women of all ages, and North Greenville University will do its part today, Feb 17 to draw awareness to this deadly disease.
It’s “GET IN THE PINK ZONE” Day at the women’s game vs. Voorhees College at 5:30 p.m. today. Everyone attending should wear ‘Pink’ to the game to show support for the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association’s “Pink Zone” campaign.
The WBCA Pink Zone™ initiative is a global, unified effort for the Women's Basketball Coaches Association's (WBCA) nation of coaches to assist in raising breast cancer awareness on the court, across campuses, in communities and beyond.
The WBCA began the WBCA Pink Zone™, formerly known as "Think Pink", in 2007 as an initiative to raise breast cancer awareness in women's basketball, on campuses and in communities. In 2007, more than 120 schools unified for this effort and helped make the inaugural year a success. In 2008, over 1,200 teams and organizations participated, reaching over 830,000 fans and raising over $930,000 for breast cancer awareness and research.
