ACC Teams Participate in Play 4Kay Initiative

Feb. 10, 2012

Throughout the second and third weeks of February, women's college basketball teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference and nationally will take part in the Play 4Kay Initiative. Before her passing on January 24, 2009, Coach Yow, along with her teammates the WBCA and The V Foundation, achieved 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 $5M through the Play 4Kay initiative. To her it was simple - 5,000 participants raising $1,000 each totaling to $5M. A total of $650,000 was raised in 2011. This year's goal is to reach the $1M milestone. The schedule of ACC games supporting the Play 4Kay Initiative is as follows:
