Lady Lions Pink Zone to raise funds for Hershey Cancer Institute

December 19, 2012

At 1 p.m. Feb. 24, the Penn State Lady Lions Basketball Team will take on Michigan for the team’s seventh annual Women's Basketball Coaches Association Pink Zone.

For the past six years, WBCA Pink Zone at Penn State has raised $565,317.73 for breast cancer awareness, research and patient support. Following the 2012 game, Pennsylvania Pink Zone donated $52,780 to Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute to support breast cancer research.

Breast cancer survivors are invited to attend the game Feb. 24 at no cost -- up to four tickets will be provided free -- and to participate in a half-time survivor program and post-game survivor reception. Survivors from southcentral Pennsylvania will also receive free transportation from Hershey to the Bryce Jordan Center compliments of Fullington Trailways. Click here to register.

Penn State Hershey faculty, staff and friends can support Pink Zone 2013 by purchasing an official Pink Zone 2013 T-shirt, available at the Penn State Hershey Breast Center and the Cancer Institute infusion therapy room beginning Jan. 2. Adult shirts are $15 each with $7 from each shirt sale going directly toward Pink Zone at Penn State.
