2010 Pink Zone raises funds for breast cancer

October 20, 2010

The Penn State Lady Lions basketball team 2010 WBCA Pink Zone at Penn State fundraising campaign raised more than $80,000 for Pink Zone charities, including Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute. The Lady Lions’ donation will fund the Penn State Lady Lion Basketball Endowment -- an endowment that will provide grants for novel ideas in breast cancer research. Since Pink Zone began four years ago, the Lady Lions have raised more than $165,000 for breast cancer awareness.

The Lady Lions kicked off the 2011 Pink Zone campaign with a Hoop Shoot at the Bryce Jordan Center on University Park campus on Saturday, Oct. 9. The 2011 WBCA Pink Zone at Penn State will take place at noon Sunday, Feb. 27, in the Bryce Jordan Center, where the Lady Lions take on Northwestern.
