Think Pink At Yale - The month of February marked the kickoff of nationwide awareness for Breast Cancer and many of Yale's teams supported the cause by hosting auctions and sporting pink jerseys. The women's basketball team's affiliation with Think Pink is especially meaningful at a time when the Smilow Cancer Center at Yale-New Haven hospital is being constructed just a few blocks from Payne Whitney Gym, as Joel Smilow '54 established the coaching endowment for women's basketball and most recently has turned his philanthropic attention to cancer research.
The women's basketball team helped raise awareness by participating in "Think Pink", an initiative created by the Women's Basketball Coaches Association. The Bulldogs supported the endeavor by raising money for the Smilow Cancer Center's breast cancer research through the sale of tee-shirts and other merchandise.
At Ingalls Rink, the women's ice hockey team showed solidarity for those suffering from the disease by participating in the "Pink at the Rink," a branded partnership between the ECAC and the American Caner Society. All ECAC Conference teams, including the Bulldogs, wore specially designed pink jerseys when they played at home during the weekends of February 8th and February 15th. All of the jerseys were auctioned off on eBay following the match-ups.
