Murfreesboro, Tenn.—(Feb. 4, 2014)—The Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders will be hosting their annual Play 4 Kay-Power of Pink game on Saturday, Feb. 8, at 2:00 p.m.
The women’s basketball team will play Conference USA rival Rice and will wear pink uniforms to be auctioned off immediately after the game, with proceeds going to the Kay Yow Foundation and our own St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital for cancer research. The Blue Raiders ask that all attendees to wear pink to celebrate cancer survivors and honor friends and loved ones who lost their battle against cancer.
Please come and celebrate life and this great cause with the Blue Raiders. There will be selected cancer survivors standing with the Blue Raiders at the beginning of the game during introductions. At halftime, guest are invited on the floor to form a high five tunnel for the Blue Raiders when they return to the floor. After the game, players will be available for autographs on the main floor.
Kay Yow was the legendary Women’s Basketball Coach at North Carolina State. She personally beat breast cancer three times before losing her battle to the disease in 2009. After her death, the Play 4 Kay Foundation was formed. Yow was the winner of the first Jimmy V Espy and her dream was to find the cure for cancer, so that no one else would have to fight this battle.
