Diplomats To Hold Second Annual Pink Zone Game

LANCASTER, Pa. – The Franklin & Marshall women’s basketball team will hold its second annual WBCA PinkZone game (formerly known as Think Pink) on Feb. 14, 2009 when the Diplomats take on Bryn Mawr at 2 p.m. Admission is free and donations are welcome at the door.

Last year, F&M raised over $550 for the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund thanks to fans donations. On Saturday, the Diplomats will be wearing pink t-shirts during the warm-up to show their support and challenge fans to wear pink to the game in honor of breast cancer survivors. The day will also feature the honoring of seniors in their final home game.

The WBCA began the 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 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.
