Summit girls bball to promote breast cancer awareness

I received an email from Summit girls basketball coach Alexis Barile earlier this afternoon saying that the SkyHawks will be wearing pink uniforms for their home game against Bloomington at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 10. The SkyHawks will be “GOING PINK” in an effort to fight breast cancer.

The pink jerseys are being donated by Ken’s Sporting Girls and Summit is expected to get pink items donated by Nike. The proceeds and donations taken will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for fighting breast cancer in honor of former N.C. State women’s basketball coach Kay Yow, who passed away last week due to the disease. Summit also will be honoring community members that have survived or have lost someone to breast cancer.
