The 25th ranked Middle Tennessee women’s basketball team hosts its annual Play 4Kay Power of Pink game on Saturday, Feb. 8, when Rice visits for a 2 p.m. Conference USA game.

The MT Athletic Department is asking all fans to wear PINK to celebrate and honor those who have survived and honor those who have lost their battle with cancer.

The Lady Raiders will auction all 15 of the exclusive game-worn pink uniforms immediately following the game. Proceeds from the auctioned jerseys will be split between the Kay Yow Cancer Fund and Saint Thomas Rutherford Foundation’s Power of Pink fund.

Who is Kay

Kay Yow, former North Carolina State University head women’s basketball coach, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1987, and passed away on January 24, 2009, after facing her third bout with the disease. With the creation of the Fund, Kay hoped to raise money to further cutting-edge research conducted by the nation’s top doctors and medical experts to allow more and more cancer patients to have access to experimental drugs and clinical trials. Since the majority of these research projects are privately funded, these researchers desperately need our support in order for them to continue to make strides in finding a cure for cancer. - According to PlayForKay.org
