BETHLEHEM, Pa. --- Moravian College is continuing its look back at its 2018-19 athletic campaign. The fifth entry in our second countdown of the summer – the Top 10 Stories of the Year selected by the athletic administration – is our No. 6 highlight – the women's basketball team finishing first in NCAA Division III in Play4Kay for the 11th consecutive year to raise money for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.
Play4Kay is the grassroots fundraising initiative of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Its primary fundraising support comes from women's basketball teams across the country that dedicate an event to raise funds and awareness for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, an organization committed to funding women's cancer research and supporting projects that assist the underserved community.
This past winter, Moravian raised $19,480, the top amount from an NCAA Division III school, to give the program a total of $154,290 donated to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund over the last 11 years. The Greyhounds' largest total was in 2017 when the program raised $21,662, and the Hounds have topped $15,000 raised six times including the last five years in a row.
