Cresson, Pa.- The Mount Aloysius College “Pink Out” effort, just completing its second year, is aimed at promoting better health for women through early detection of breast cancer, urging baseline and annual mammograms and breast self-exam.  The Second Annual Mounties “Pink Out” volleyball game  raised over $2622.75 this year for the excellent healthcare of the Windber Medical Center’s (WMC) Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center (JMBCC). The community embraced the message and the well-organized effort packed the Mount Aloysius College Athletic Health and Fitness Center as the Mounties took on Franciscan University last fall.

The full-court press against breast cancer was a cooperative Mount Aloysius effort involving students, staff and faculty from several departments including: Athletics, Controller, Human Resources, Surgical Technology, Science and Mathematics, and Student Activities departments at the College.  Activities included T-shirt and teddy bear sales, concessions, raffles and lots of fun decorating the Mount Aloysius Health and Fitness Center for the special night of collegiate volleyball.
