Think Pink! Across campus last week, student athletes, faculty, and staff gathered together to raise money for breast cancer awareness through the Pink Zone program.

During the time between the games, all the faculty, staff, and students wearing pink gathered outside to create a gigantic pink breast cancer ribbon.

During the week of Feb. 1-Feb. 6, student athletes and members of SMILE sat in Bartels selling bright pink T shirts. The five dollars used to pay for the shirts was donated to breast cancer awareness as the kick off to the Pink Zone event. Students across campus gathered in their pink outfits to get ready for the basketball games over the weekend.

On Saturday, Feb. 6, the men and women’s basketball teams at the University of New Haven played a double header against Southern Connecticut State University. Henry C. Lee, renowned forensic scientist and creator of the Henry C. Lee Institute, opened the games with a dedication and donation for breast cancer awareness. Cheers filled the gymnasium during the exciting men’s and women’s games. The men rallied over Southern Connecticut State University 62 to 47 and the women won 73 to 58.

During the time between the games, all the faculty, staff, and students wearing pink gathered outside to create a gigantic pink breast cancer ribbon. This breast cancer ribbon, photographed by Yearbook Editor Rachel Barton, will be a continuous visual reminder of the University of New Haven’s support of breast cancer donations and awareness.
