EDISON – “Pink Day,” a program in which the Middlesex County College and Ocean County College basketball teams supported Breast Cancer Awareness, was held at Middlesex on Feb. 17.
The men’s and women’s teams from both schools wore pink warmup t-shirts and wristbands and members of the Middlesex softball team held a bake sale and collected donations for the American Cancer Society.
The program was part of “Pink Zone,” a national effort to raise awareness and funds, organized by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association. Last year, more than 1600 schools and organizations participated. Before the women’s game, Middlesex President Joann La Perla-Morales officiated at a ceremonial tipoff.
