HIRAM, OHIO — The Hiram College women’s basketball team will host its WBCA (Women’s Basketball Coaches Association) “Pink Zone” event on Saturday (Feb. 12) when the Terriers host Oberlin College at Price Gymnasium.
The WBCA Pink Zone® initiative is a global, unified effort for the WBCA nation of coaches to assist in raising breast cancer awareness on the court, across campuses, in communities and beyond. The WBCA began the WBCA 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.
Since 2007, the WBCA Pink Zone has raised nearly $3.3 million, has reached almost 2.7 million fans, and has unified over 4,700 participants in only four years. The WBCA encourages that all funds from the Pink Zone event be donated to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, in partnership with the V Foundation.
