The 2014 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. The Illinois State University women's basketball team will be wearing pink jerseys and shoes for the game. All fans are encouraged to wear pink to show their support of breast cancer awareness.
Since its inception in 2007, the Play 4Kay initiative has raised over $2.5 million to support women's cancer research, with Illinois State contributing $21,000 last year alone. The Kay Yow Cancer Fund is the official charity of the initiative.
