The Johns Hopkins and Gettysburg women's basketball teams
joined with the Women's
Basketball Coaches Association Feb. 13 in the WBCA's Think
Pink program, a global effort to assist in
raising breast cancer awareness on the court, across
campuses, in communities and beyond. Think Pink
week involved nearly 1,000 participating teams and
conferences, with a goal of raising $250,000.
As part of its commitment, the JHU team was one of
nearly 200 nationwide that purchased
special uniforms for its Think Pink game, and both teams
wore pink T-shirts during warm-ups.
Under the direction of coach Nancy Funk; Rebecca
Copeland, senior women's administrator; and
JHU's Student Athlete Advisory Committee, the
Blue Jays raised $1,000 for
the Susan G. Komen
Foundation of Maryland through donations taken at the door
and matched by two local businesses,
Eddie's Market of Charles Village and PJ's Pub.
The game was a tight one, with Gettysburg squeaking
out a 55-53 win.
