GREENSBORO, N.C. - Throughout the second and third weeks of February, women’s college basketball teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference and nationally will participate in the Play 4Kay initiative.

Before her passing on January 24, 2009, Coach Yow, along with her teammates from the WBCA and The V Foundation, achieve the feat of uniting thousands in the fight against women’s cancers. The movement continues to grow and change lives each and every year during the month of February.

The Play 4Kay initiative, formerly known as the WBCA Pink Zone, showcases women’s college basketball throughout the nation, with proceeds going to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Coach Yow shared her goal of raising $5 million through the Play 4Kay initiative. To date, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund has contributed over $3.8 million in support of women’ s cancer research.  

Each of the ACC’s 15 schools are dedicating one of their home women’s basketball games toward the initiative in 2014.
