The Gannon University basketball teams are stepping up once again to raise money to help fight breast cancer.
Today, as part of the university’s 12th Annual ‘Pink Zone’ Event, volunteers held a Chinese Auction to raise money for ‘Linked by Pink’. That organization’s mission is to help raise awareness surrounding breast cancer while supporting survivors.
Both men and women’s basketball teams dawned pink jerseys to commemorate the event.
Breast Cancer Survivor and Pink Zone Committee Member Dawn Sokol tells us, “There are people I know and associate with. And, it’s always good to get together and celebrate each other and celebrate surviving.”
The Pink Zone project has raised about $150,000 for local breast cancer patients and survivors in the last 12 years.
