FSU Hosts Pink Zone Game on Feb. 18

Breast cancer awareness is not relegated to October.
Fayetteville State University (FSU) will host a Pink Zone game on Monday, Feb. 18, 2012, against Shaw University at 5 PM.
The Pink Zone, (formerly known as "Think Pink") began in 2007 as an initiative to raise breast cancer awareness on campuses and in communities. Kay Yow, former North Carolina State University head women's basketball coach, served as the catalyst for the initiative after her third recurrence of breast cancer in 2006.
Breast cancer survivors who express interest in attending the FSU game will receive a free ticket. Those interested in attending should call 910-672-1685 not later than Friday, Feb. 10. All cancer survivors and fans are asked to wear pink to the game.
The community, FSU family, alumni, and friends of FSU are asked to make a donation to the Donice Harbor Endowment. An FSU graduate, Harbor was the Director of Faith & Citizens Outreach for North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue at the time of her death in July 2009. Harbor was 36 when she lost a battle with breast cancer. Shortly before her death, Harbor and her mother started an endowment fund at FSU. These funds will provide scholarships for students with an interest in public service. Checks should be made payable to FSU with the words "Harbor Endowment" in the memo line.
Can you do anything to help?!
