Saturday's Breast Cancer Awareness event at the University of Montana Grizzly game was a big success, as this Missoulian article attests. We were all in the Pink, with cheerleaders hoisting pink pom-poms and the team mascot, Monte, sporting a white shirt with pink number "00."
It was really nice to see all the pink on display during the Sunday Night Football on NBC, with the Chicago Bears and Atlanta Falcons players and coaches wearing pink gloves, wristbands, ribbons, etc.; even the Officials participated in the Pink.
So many of our friends and relatives have been affected with breast cancer in the past five years or so, it just seems like it is getting worse instead of better.
We have a long way to go in defeating breast cancer, but awareness and monetary contributions are the first steps.
Officially, the Pink Zone is the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) annual breast cancer awareness campaign, which you can check out at the Pink Zone links.
