The USC Upstate women’s basketball program is teaming up with The Kay Yow Cancer Fund to hold its Play 4Kay game on Saturday, Feb. 21 when the Spartans host Florida Gulf Coast at 2 p.m. from the Hodge Center.

Upstate will be joining up with the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority who will be on hand raising funds and awareness on behalf of Play 4Kay’s mission to support cancer research.

All cancer survivors wearing pink will be admitted to the game free of charge. Proceeds from the game will go to benefit The Kay Yow Cancer Fund.

The 2015 Play 4Kay initiative is an opportunity for a nation of coaches to raise breast cancer awareness and funds for research on the court, across campuses, in communities and beyond. Since its inception in 2007, the Play 4Kay initiative has raised over $3.8 million to support women’s cancer research.

The Kay Yow Cancer Fund, in partnership with the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and The V Foundation, is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization committed to being a part of finding an answer in the fight against women’s cancers through raising money for scientific research, assisting the underserved and unifying people for a common cause.
