The Carthage women’s basketball team is scheduled to host a Play4Kay Pink Game in their 2018-19 regular season finale at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16 against Augustana College. Fans are encouraged to attend the contest in pink attire to support the fight against breast cancer. 

The Play4Kay initiative, named after former North Carolina State University coach Kay Yow, is an opportunity to raise awareness and funds for cancer research on the court, across campuses, in communities and beyond. Since its inception in 2007, the Play4Kay initiative has helped the Kay Yow Cancer Fund support 7.53 million dollars in cancer research and related projects. This unique and important initiative serves as a platform for the women’s basketball community to come together for a common cause. For more information, visit www.kayyow.com.
