Cresson, Pa. – Pressing the message that early detection of breast cancer is the best road to a cure; Mount Aloysius College is joining forces with Windber Medical Center’s Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center. The public is invited to the “Pink Out” Volleyball game scheduled for Wednesday, October 16th at 7:00 p.m. The event will be held in the Mount Aloysius Athletic Health and Fitness Center on campus as the Lady Mountie take on Franciscan University.

Mount Aloysius College’s Director of Human Resources Tonia Gordon said that MAC’s “Pink Out” Volleyball game is a great way to spread the word about early detection.  “Whether you’re a women or a man, breast cancer affects all of our lives,” she said. “The best way to protect yourself and your loved ones is to follow the guidelines for early detection including monthly self-exam and baseline mammograms.”

Highlights of the “Pink Out Game,“ will include giveaways, refreshments and raffles. The evening will be lots of fun and everyone is invited.
