OGDEN -- In an effort to raise awareness of those who have cancer in the community, Ogden Regional Medical Center and Utah Imaging are asking Weber State University basketball fans to wear pink to Saturday’s game against Sacramento State.
The game is scheduled to tipoff at 7 p.m.
Patrons wearing pink can get two tickets for the price of one admission during the first annual “Think Pink — Bleed Purple” event.
An estimated 10,000 new cases of cancer strike Utahns each year, according to both health care organizations. If caught early, however, it can be managed properly.
During the game, local cancer survivors will be recognized. Prizes will also be given away.
