UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Fullington Trailways continues to celebrate and support Pink Zone at Penn State and will debut a new Pink Zone at Penn State bus on Saturday as Fullington transports the Lady Lions to Rutgers for their game on Sunday. Fullington Trailways and other bus companies will provide free bus service for breast cancer survivors from 20 cities across Pennsylvania to the 2015 Pink Zone at Penn State presented by Mount Nittany Health on Sunday, March 1.

The partnership Fullington Trailways has with the Lady Lions in support of the Pink Zone at Penn State stretches into its seventh year. "Many people are affected by cancer in one way or another, so this is a cause that most everyone can connect with and we're happy to support," said Mike Fullington, Vice President & COO of Fullington Trailways. "It touched our family a few years ago when my sister, Aerial Fullington Weisman, Past President & CEO of Fullington Trailways, was diagnosed with the disease."

"We strongly believe in giving back to the community, and being able to support and remember loved ones is truly an honor. Year after year, we are proud to continue our partnership with Penn State University," states Mike Fullington. "We hope this partnership will thrive for years to come!"
