Durham Bulls game will raise funds in support of the fight against women’s cancers

Who/What: UNC Health Care, Rex Healthcare, the Durham Bulls and the Kay Yow Cancer Fund invite the Triangle community to attend the “Field of Hope” Durham Bulls game on Saturday, August 8, to join in the fight against women’s cancers.

Durham Bulls Athletic ParkFans are invited to purchase special “Field of Hope” tickets for $12.99, with $5 of each ticket sold benefiting the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Tickets can be purchased at using the promo code “PLAY4KAY.” The first 1,000 fans to present their “Field of Hope” ticket at the UNC-Rex Healthcare tables along the outfield concourse of the Durham Bulls Athletic Park on game day will receive a free gift.

The Bulls will recognize survivors during the game. Additionally, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund will host a raffle with giveaways throughout the event, and Rex’s Mobile Mammography Unit will be on-site.

In December 2007, Coach Yow founded the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization committed to being a part of finding an answer in the fight against women’s cancers through raising funds in support of scientific research, assisting the underserved and unifying people for a common cause.
