- The Bantams will host a Play4Kay Breast Cancer Awareness game for its February 10 matchup against Hamilton College. The team will have a donation jar at the game and will be giving all donations to the Play4Kay cause in an effort to raise awareness and funds to fight women's cancers. The Play4Kay Foundation works to help find a answer in the fight against women's cancers. Since its inception in 2007, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund has allocated more than $5.28 million in support of women's cancer research and related projects that serve the underserved. The goal of the organization is to fund projects that will extend lives, enhance the quality of life for those battling cancer, and eventually, put an end to this formidable disease.
