Oregon #play4kay Fundraising Auction

Oregon Ducks pink helmet auction in support of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.

The Kay Yow Cancer Fund

The Kay Yow Cancer Fund was officially founded on December 3, 2007 from the vision of the organization’s namesake Kay Yow, former NC State University head women’s basketball coach.

The Kay Yow Cancer Fund is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization committed to being a part of finding an answer in the fight against women’s cancers through raising money for scientific research, assisting the underserved, and unifying people for a common cause.  Coach Yow knew that if motivated coaches, their athletes and a dedicated community came together, they could enact meaningful change on and off the playing field. To date, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund has supported over $2.6 million in women’s cancer research and related programs focused on women’s cancers.

The Helmet

The pink helmets worn by the Oregon Ducks pay tribute to those who have been affected by women's cancers. In support of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, the Oregon Ducks will begin an exclusive auction of five authentic helmets each day for five days, beginning on 10.19.13 at 7PM PST / 10pm EST and concluding 10.25.13 after the last auction. Each helmet will open at $14, in honor of the jersey number of the legendary Kay Yow and 100% of the proceeds will go to aid in the fight against women's cancers.

The Auction has ended.
We Thank You for all the support!
