Lady Lions & Fullington to Offer Survivors Free Service for Pink Zone Game

The Penn State Lady Lions and Fullington Trailways are proud to announce the formation of an agreement to provide free bus service for breast cancer survivors for the 2011 WBCA Pink Zone at Penn State game on Sunday, Feb. 27 versus Northwestern at noon at the Bryce Jordan Center. Fullington Trailways, Susquehanna Trailways and Martz Trailways will provide service to the Pink Zone at Penn State from 13 Pennsylvania cities.

“There are several reasons we wanted to get involved in Pink Zone,” Lory Fullington, Fullington Vice President for Charters and Tours said. “Cancer has affected our family, friends and employees, who we consider an extended family, so naturally we are proud to support the Penn State Lady Lions’ fight against cancer. Many of us are Penn State alumni and we have put our heart and soul into continued involvement with the university. We attend many Penn State functions and have provided transportation service for the university for over 50 years. Penn State and the fight against cancer are very important to us.”

Fullington Trailways will have buses depart from Huntingdon, DuBois/Clearfield, Bedford/Altoona, Harrisburg/Hershey, Lewistown and Chambersburg, while Susquehanna Trailways will service Williamsport/Lock Haven and Martz Trailways will bring survivors from Scranton/Wilkes Barre.

Seats on the bus are first come, first served and a reservation and ticket for the bus are required. Breast cancer survivors can register for special ticket packages that include free tickets for each survivor and up to three family members or friends, with additional tickets available for $5 each (regular price $12), participation in a special halftime ceremony to honor ALL Breast Cancer Survivors and tickets to a postgame reception for survivors and their guests. Additional information and registration forms for survivors can be found at www.gopsusports.com/pinkzone.

The 2011 WBCA Pink Zone at Penn State will take place on Sunday, Feb. 27 at noon as the Lady Lions take on Northwestern in the Bryce Jordan Center. The game can be seen on the Big Ten Network. Last year, the Lady Lions donated more than $80,000 for breast cancer causes. This year’s fundraising efforts will benefit the Mount Nittany Medical Center, Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute, Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund and J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital. For more information on the Pink Zone at Penn State, visit the official Pink Zone website at www.gopsusports.com/pinkzone.

The Foundation’s 21st Annual Golf Tournament raised $150,000 for the new Cancer Center.
