When the Cedarville women’s basketball team runs out on the court Thursday in pink jerseys, many will have as much of a personal reason for cheering as they will a sporting one. But one person’s connection goes back to the name attached to the fundraising event.
Stephanie Zonars, assistant athletic director for marketing and sponsorships, helped organize Thursday’s Play4Kay fundraiser during Cedarville’s game with Salem International at 5:30 p.m. at Callan Athletic Center at Cedarville University. Play4Kay was founded by former North Carolina State University women’s basketball coach Kay Yow. Yow, who served as head coach 34 years with more than 700 career wins, died of cancer in 2009. She started the fund in 2007, which has provided more than $5 million for women’s cancer research.
