Hartford, Conn. – The Trinity College women's basketball team hosted a Play4Kay Cancer Awareness game on its February 9th matchup against Bates College in Oosting Gymnasium. The Bantams had a donation jar at the game and all donations went to the Play4Kay cause in an effort to raise awareness and funds to fight women's cancers. In total, the event raised $640.00 towards the effort.
"The Play4Kay initiative has united the women's basketball community in the fight to end women's cancers," said Trinity Head Coach Emily Garner. "Almost everyone has been affected by cancer in some way, shape, or form, so this event gives us a chance to show our support and give back as much as we possibly can. Being able to raise $640 in just one day is a true testament to the Trinity College community, and we're appreciative of all those who were able to give and participate."
The Play4Kay Foundation works to help find a answer in the fight against women's cancers. Since its inception in 2007, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund has allocated more than $5.28 million in support of women's cancer research and related projects that serve the underserved. The goal of the organization is to fund projects that will extend lives, enhance the quality of life for those battling cancer, and eventually, put an end to this formidable disease.
