UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the
Nittany Lion football team has decided to wear pink gloves, wristbands and chin
protectors at Saturday's game against Iowa.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities each October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by the disease.
Annually, the Penn State women's basketball team hosts a Pink Zone game to
benefit individuals affected by breast cancer.
Last year, the Lady Lions donated a record $203,000 to breast cancer
causes. The 2013 Pink Zone game will
take place on Feb. 24 when the Lady Lions take on Michigan.
