Penn State Pink Zone Game a Big Success
That alone would be enough to make this a memorable game for the Lady Lions, but that does not even begin to describe how special a day that this truly was. Many of the fans came to the game to celebrate the efforts of the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Pink Zone Organization in conjunction with the Lady Lions to raise money and awareness for the fight against Breast Cancer. Last year a grand total of $203,000 was raised for the cure (this year’s amount has yet to be released). What makes the event truly special, however, is the celebration of the survivors. A total of 620 proud women filled the floor at halftime holding up cards with the number of years that they have survived after initial diagnosis. This amount came out to be in excess of 3,000 years, which is just a mind-numbing figure. But other than that, nothing very exciting or inspirational occurred.
