The WPI Women's Basketball team will be hosting Babson on Wednesday evening at 7pm in its annual "Play4Kay" game.
The 2016 Play 4Kay initiative is an opportunity for a nation of coaches to raise breast cancer awareness and funds for research on the court, across campuses, in communities and beyond. Since its inception in 2007, the Play 4Kay initiative has raised over $5.18 million to support women's cancer research.
Fans are encouraged to join the teams, event workers, pep band and cheerleaders in wearing pink to the game. According to WPI head women's coach Cherise Galasso, between the shirts, balloons and decorations, the WPI gymnasium will be a "sea of pink" that afternoon. In addition, the WPI website will go pink in honor of the event.
The WBCA and The V Foundation have been invaluable partners to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund in its first nine years and the Fund looks forward to its continued collaboration with both organizations.
