PSU to hold Think Pink Day at Panther basketball games

Panthers to raise funds, awareness for Breast Cancer

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Fans of all ages are invited to come to the Think Pink Information Expo at Plymouth State University to raise community awareness about breast cancer including prevention, detection, treatment (both traditional and complementary), nutrition, rehabilitation, survivorship and family support.

            The expo will be held on Saturday, Feb. 2, from noon – 4 p.m. in the Plymouth State University Physical Education Center. The event is in conjunction with afternoon home games hosted by Plymouth State’s men’s and women’s basketball teams.

            Sponsored by PSU’s Department of Athletics, Center for Active Living & Healthy Communities and the Department of Health and Human Performance, this event is designed to showcase resources and bring a variety of practitioners together for community education. All proceeds from game ticket sales are being donated to the Play 4Kay Foundation, a national non-profit created in memory of North Carolina State women’s basketball coach Kay Yow that raises money for scientific research, assists the underserved and unites people in the fight against breast cancer.

            There will be a raffle of various prizes including massage therapy gift certificates, and exercise memberships. Please contact Jill Tarkleson at psuthinkpink@gmail.com with any questions.
